How did I miss the discussion about our wall?

We had a Skype conversation with Arturo last night and he mentioned how nice the wall was turning out. "What wall?", I asked. And he went on about how interesting it is to watch the stone workers cover our wall in stone by cutting and placing all the stone like a large puzzle. How did I miss the conversation when we were told that some of our wall outside would be covered in stone? How did Carlos miss this conversation? After all his first language is Spanish... well actually Puerto Rican spanish... but close enough! I knew that one of the walls in the interior hallway will be covered in stone, that's where the inside waterfall will be... but outside in the courtyard... I totally missed that one! So I reserved judgement until Arturo's photos arrived last night.

And the verdict is, I like it! I'm imagining the area with some green and my courtyard water feature. As Roger, our architect would say, "Organica"!
Arturo also sent several photos of some of the fine finish on the walls now, with promised of some more photos this week. Here are those....

What comes next? Well this week the electrician and the plumber spent some time here. We are still waiting for the tile order to be finished and delivered and the floors to start being installed... than we will really see some changes!
