We’ve moved on up……or on back is more like it - last weekend in fact. It took me a whole week to unpack, crawling back into bed every 20 minutes or so, but now that we're settled, come take a look!
The week previous we had been staying in an apartment that just so happens to be about 2 feet off of a busy cobblestone road. It was nice, but loud – really loud. Fortunately for us, one of the apartments that sits way back from the road in the same complex became available and now it’s ours! It’s 2 levels, bigger and costs a bit more, but not laying in bed listening to “Guate, Guate, Guate!” as the chicken buses thunder by at 5am is priceless!
Of course it's not as homey as 1210 E. Colfax, but it's pretty much the best place we could find in our price range. So far we've been enjoying waking up with sun coming in the windows - something that we missed out on during our time on the 'Fax. Our only complaint is the bed-like couches. They're kind of awkward, but whatever - they'll do us just fine for our short stint here.
Like I mentioned in a previous blog, this move is temporary as we’ll be moving into a 2 bedroom house with a big terrace on the other side of town in July and we can hardly wait. Book your flights now!
