Answer was “Maybe” Hope to meet more new neighbours on this visit as it was a bit lonely last time with only us in the block. Broke my wrist at work on Monday but managed to persuade A and E to strap it up till i get back as they might not have let me fly in plaster.If there is anything interesting to tell i will post on here when we get back.


    The silence is deafening OJ.

    Come on mister, share what you experienced

    Just had a further e mail from Christine which says the vice President is now back in Italy and should be back in about 2 weeks. I’ve asked for a plan of works and completion dates over the period so we can keep track of the schedule.

    Christine will have a meeting with him and respond ASAP.


    To get a definite answer from absolute trustworthy and reliable sources, you’re going to have to wait a week as a number of forum members are out there this week, which also means that if the VP was in CV he’s done a runner just as this group of disillusioned buyers has arrived on the island.

    What a coincidence

    I’ve never been, it was my buying partners, sister and brother in law who were over in November. But looking at their pics of the beach, sea, blue sky etc I’ve got to get my arse into gear

    You will take a lap top, find a wifi area and keep us informed daily of what’s going on or what’s not going on

    Have a safe and enjoyable trip

    Just had an e mail from NDR in cape verde regarding Block D.They have been in discussions with Turinvest and have been told that completion will be no earlier than Dec 11.

    If i sign an addendum agreeing to the completion date they will offer me a max 5% reduction in the overall cost of the apartment.

    Just thought i’d let you all know as news from this forum seems to have dried up.

    Cheers

    Exactly when is the promised completion date, because in my opinion “no earlier than Dec 2011”, could mean any time after that month

    The way the djadsal hotel was closed down too, should show the type of person you’re dealing with. “Staff turned up to find a message waiting for them saying you’re out of work! Some were still owed wages too!


    The “alleged” story behind that is, the hotel was sold, for a not insignificant amount, to a dodgy businessman, who’s since done a runner.
    The hotel has supposedly been offered back to the Stefano group at a fraction of its true value.

    Now I’m not the sharpest tool in the box, but you’ve posted two contradictory messages chez.

    Have a good time Chez. Why not ask Christiane if you can speak with the V President to get some answers and find out when work will recommence on your block.


    I can answer that now John.

    When the pumps arrive in January.

    We got an email from Christiane yesterday.
    info@turinvestholding-realestate.com


    Did she have much to say, or was she just saying “goodbye”?

    When you are out there any chance you can get a couple of pictures of this pump in Block B and post them on the forum. When we were there in October we spent several days rummaging about and could find no sign at all of any pumping or outflow. So Curious as to what we missed.

    Enjoy the trip.

    Mike & Louise


    My relatives were out there last week and stayed in block B.
    The pump is located in the pump house next to the pool and the water goes through a pipe to the beach.
    If anyone’s got a contact at Baileys Bar they’ll confirm it.

    John, you take a look when you’re there in a couple of weeeks

    I seem to remember womens groups complaining because hurricanes were only given womens names.
    After this campaign hurricanes are now named alternately between men and women.

    Thanks for that RJ. Did not know that Christiane was leaving but she must be fed up with the flak.

    Has the Vice President arrived yet, is pool still empty ?


    The pool was refilled and then it emptied a bit again, so at least they know at what level the leak is.

    The Vice President was supposed to be arriving to take up his position today (Monday) Someone needs to be there cracking the whip because as we know, Fabrizio has left and Christiane leaves at the end of the month.

    There is a pump working on Block B with the water going via a pipeline onto the beach and into the sea.

    The Hilton is being built about a quarter of a mile up the road.
