impressions #12 - a few photos of my apartment
Here are a few photos of my apartment. First, the sitting area... comfortable enough. The furniture came with the place, though I'm free to get rid of it if I want. I might in a while. Everything's built of concrete. The walls are plastered and the floors are all tile. It makes it easy to wash the floors down since there's a fair amount of dust. But I'm up on the 3rd floor, well up above the street, which helps.
The bathroom is simple. Like you find around Europe, the shower has no enclosure. So make sure to stash the toilet paper away or it will get wet.
This is my front door handle. They love their "baroque" here. My building is brand new. It's 10 minutes walk from my office. I'm quite happy with it.
