After a somewhat difficult experience of looking at many, many apartments over a period of 3 days, my roommate Maggie and I just found a place to live! Once again Jaime, our bus driver and my new favorite Colombian, picked us up at the hotel and took us to look at places. We found this place which is ironically located right across the street from the very first apartment we ever looked at!
Here are some pictures...
View from the outside of our building. We are on the third floor; our balcony is hiding behind that tree on the corner.
Spare bedroom in between the two of ours...maybe our office??
My room!!!!!!!!!! With door to balcony :)
My bathroom :)
Living room area with patio door.Kitchen with marble countertops, new gas stove/oven, and more cupboards than we have stuff to put in them...
In summary I LOVE LOVE LOVE it, especially after feeling somewhat frustrated the last few days about not having found a place yet. Also, the price fits perfectly in our price range and is located in the southern part of the city, about a 15 minute ride to school and a 5 minute walk to La Catorce (The Fourteen), the huge grocery/Target-like store here in Colombia.
In summary, Maggie and I will not be living in a cardboard box together....hooray!!!!!!
