new home: before

The moving experience is almost over. It’s taken almost a month to settle in! Here are some belated photos of the apartment in a very chaotic state. Believe it or not, it was much worse than these photos! We had to shove everything we owned into the living room because the prior tenants did not move out when they said they would. They also didn’t clean the place at all so we spent a lot of energy sweeping, mopping, washing windows, and wiping down cabinets. Here is a taste of what it was like. Just imagine the piles about 3 feet higher.

The living room.

The kitchen.

This is our hallway/desk nook area leading to the bedroom and bathroom.

For days we couldn’t find our shower curtain. That was interesting.

Our bedroom which has since transformed into a rather cozy space.

Last but not least, this is the street we live on. It feels like we are in the mountains. The view is lovely. The birds chirp their little hearts out. In front of us is a beautiful park. Behind us is a convent. Who could ask for more? We are excited to see the trees change in the coming weeks.
