We have had quite a few eventful days and I really don't wanna share everything just yet, but I will in a few days. We are still going to get Liza, but we haven't gotten to meet her yet or even go to her region but we will be going there on Monday if nothing else changes. What can I say except, "This is ________", oh yeah I can't even say that yet. HA! HA! Those of you who have been here and done this know what I mean.
Pics? Anybody up for some of those? That I can do.
|This is the door to our apartment building. (sorry can't flip it)|
|The view of the building right across from us from outside the kitchen window. I just think it's so romantic looking. The architecture on some of the buildings is so beautiful.|
|A little glimpse of our little bathroom.|
|Our tiny little kitchen. It's cute. I am still trying to figure out why the stove has a sticker on it that says something about an airbag though.|
Yes, they really do drive and park on the sidewalks here. This is just under our kitchen window. I've noticed that they actually have marks painted on the sidewalk in some places as if those spots are parking spaces, and it seems you can even buy or rent some of the spaces. They have these little metal bars that go up and down with locks on them. There are also some places where there are guys whose sole job it seems is to watch the cars that are parked there or direct the flow of the sidewalk automobile traffic and show people where it's ok to park.

Just kind of random, I know but that's what I've got for now. We kinda like this city. It's fun to walk around and look at everything. some things are so much like home and some things are pretty different. Some of the people are very friendly and helpful and some of them just laugh at us, just like at home... haha
