The living room: for starters there weren't clothes hanging in that closet in the far room, but the place was spacious. I mean really big, especially for one person. My two suitcases made the place feel almost empty. After being here almost a month I still don't know how I would ever manage to fill it by myself. Now, as I began to explore my apartment, I came across a multitude of these creepy little stickers and hooks. They wouldn't be so bad, except that they are everywhere. On every wall, door, light-switch, you name it, everything has some chibi animal or child staring at me. This one is on my washing machine:
Can you say what the heck? Why are there children wearing speedos and eating ice cream on my washing machine?! There are lions, and deer, and other small children as well. I'd tear them all down but I get the feeling they are watching me...
Anyways, back to the apartment. Here is the living room from the doorway of the far room in the first picture:
Yes I have a television, no I don't have any channels. The water jug didn't have any water until just a few days ago, and that was an exciting event all by itself. If you walk through the doorway to in the left of the first photo, you are greeted by my lonely, empty refrigerator:
A few more steps brings you to the "kitchen." I use the term loosely because it also functions as a bathroom, laundry room, and I don't dare cook food in my apartment for fear of summoning the roaches.
And now the moment for which we've all been waiting. The bathroom. I got my fervent wish for a Western toilet, but I didn't get the separate shower I saw in my dreams. Oh well, you win some and you lose some.
In addition to all of the above, I have two, yes that's right, TWO bedrooms. The guest room (the one you can see from the entrance) came with a bed, a closet, and a desk.
Oh, and they threw in a connected balcony. Not sure who the weirdo is in the picture, probably some fanboy student of mine.
Last but not least we have my very own bedroom. The bed is about as fixed as it ever was back home. Two reasons can be presented as for why I chose this room over the other: 1) the bed is bigger, and 2) it has a massive shelf/closet on one wall.
