Well, we have finally decided on an apartment. We had narrowed it down to two and were doing a little negotiating to see which one we would go with. We decided on the 3 bedroom because they are going to put in a new kitchen, add screens to the windows, and they found a second parking spot for us!!!
Parking spots down town are not easy to find and are very expensive. When we told them we would like another spot we figured we would get a pass to park on the street or have to walk several blocks to get there. When we went to see the garage they had found it just so happened to be right across the street from the door to our apartment!! A woman who teaches in the American schools lives there and has a hard time parking in the small garage so she offered to "rent" her garage to us. We are so lucky to find another parking spot!!!
We will not be able to move in for another two weeks or so because they have to clean, paint, etc. We are set to sign all of the paper work on Thursday so hopefully everything will go smoothly.
I do not have any pictures of it, but will post them as soon as I get them. It has three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one with lovely pink tile). We will use one of the bedrooms for storage and the other as a guest bedroom. The living and dining room are one big room and the kitchen is just off the living room. The kitchen is quite small, but it will work. It is in a great location. We will be able to walk to restaurants, markets, bars, and shops very easily. It is about 3 miles from post where Taylor will be working. We are very excited!!!
We are still in temporary housing at the Ederle Inn on post. It has not been a bad place to live for what will probably be a little over a month. We did a video tour if you would like to see. It is nothing too exciting, but we have a lot of time on our hands these days! :)
