Right on Presidenta ! but can't help wondering if you'll be bought out by "Kick backs" to change your mind.

I hope you stick to your decision, here in C.R. many projects are started,(selected few) make their $ then pull out and things are left unfinished....unfortunately it's the case with this project that has already made an ugly impact in the area that will take decades to repair itself. Just my humble opinion.
