The world is (a new) flat
Since we arrived we had been staying with our very generous friends. At the beginning of January we found ourselves a new flat. After looking at a few that were extremely tiny and hideously dirty we settled on this one:
|The outside. It's pretty tall.|
It's close to trams, across from the Botanical Gardens, near-ish to shops.
|The view from the bedroom window. The bedroom is a constant tip so no pictures of that.|
We share with 4 other people: 2 French, 2 Italian. It's not as crowded as you might think.
Best part? WE HAVE A POOL! And given that everyday in the last couple of weeks has been above 30 degrees, this is the best possible news (and deciding factor)
|Gym, pool & tennis court|
Also, I got a job. I'm working as a waitress at an American themed diner. It's pretty fun and funny. It's busy and hot. I'm learning how to make a spicy dipping sauce called Po'man's Cocaine. It got on my hand and then on my face and, dude, it burns.
Yesterday between my lunch and dinner shifts I fell asleep on a park bench like a hobo. It was surprisingly comfortable.
|Next door's pool (they have a hot tub. We are jealous)|
So this is the situation for the next few months. Seems like a good way to spend the summer.
Today I'm thankful for good roommates, a job, good shoes, air conditioning and a pool.
