The landlord is putting in a pool. It was entirely dug out by hand!
Don't worry, it will have a childproof fence around it.
This week they started laying all of the brick for the pool deck. I took pics with the BlackBerry but of course today I can't seem to be able to download them ... ironically, today I also received the charger for my Nikon camera that I ordered two weeks ago from Amazon. So at least I'm not camera-less!
