Can I have their address please?

At one point here in la Barra in talking about how we might put together our own alternative development plan, we calculated that with about $3 million usd we could do it.

That sounds like a lot but if you found 20-50 donors... it's more feasible than you might think. That would make it only $150,000 usd to $60,000 usd per donor (or some similar configuration).

That would have allowed us through our civil association to purchase enough of the land around the existing village to have the power to force the government to make us a protected nature reserve. It would have included the parcel of 11 hectares on both sides of the village and bordering the lagoon, plus the concessions of the lagoon, plus what had been the only remaining hectare on the beach next to the school that might have guaranteed beach access to the villagers. (That parcel has since been sold to a group of partners who plan to build private vacation homes and of course some more rentals).

With that plan we could have designed the expansion of the village FOR THE VILLAGERS (what a novel idea) selling family size lots to them at a rate that is realistic within their actual economics - not the escalated rates.

Anyone have personal contacts with Brangelina? Time is running out!

Hasta pronto,
