Home at last:


Well after almost a month and a half of living out of suitcases.... literally......, we have unpacked and put them out of sight. We had been living at the training center waiting for another couple to move out of the team apartment, and finally we can call somewhere home. The team apartment used to be the offices and now has been split up into three seperate apartments, so our neighbours are a family from brazil and joska & sandi. The apartment is quite roomy... two rooms, a large kitchen and two bathrooms, alright thats a lie, a water closet (toliet closet, literally its a closet!) and a bathroom. Strangely enough they chose to put a sink outside this closet which is in the hall, and the sink well its so tiny you can hardly get your hands under it, but hey there must be some reason for this.As you can see we live in a world of all sorts. Look close, the hallways well they are very sauna like, the bedroom, quaint cottage theme, the kitchen, look at the border must have originally been a kids room, or someone likes the colour blue and stars. and my personal fav the bathrooms, 80s swimming pool, the local spa must have had some left over tiles. But really we cant complain its roomy, its secure and we can call it our own. Well at least for the next 6 months. Oh did I mentoin the toliet has zero water pressure. Chris your plumbing skills are desperatly needed here. There isnt even a tank on the toliet, just turn the tap on and pray it all goes down. We have to keep a bucket of water handy for those needed times. Anyways enough about heavy loads onto some heavier things, we started language school and well I think my brain is already fried! we are in a three week intesive course along with two other people and they weren't joking about the intensive part, no false advertising around here. The teacher only spoke in Hungarian and already gave us homework on the first day. I can already see that there will be times that I'll want to just get up and run for the border, but I'm sure after all is said and done and I understand a bit more of this crazy language I'll appreciate doing this. The joke here is how do you know that Hungarian is spoke in Heaven... because it takes a eternity to learn..... haha, maybe its funny for you but not for us who actually have to learn it. Well as bad as we make it sound we are so happy to have our on place and soon the second bedroom will be changed into a living room, Joska has some sofas and stuff stored up for when they move but he kindly offered them to us to borrow till then, so our home is quickly becoming a home and it feels oh so nice to have, and the language well we get it, one day...hopefully!

What an interesting looking apartment! I sure hope that hot water tank doesn't drop on your head as you're bathing!

Moses said to the Lord, "O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue." The Lord said to him, "Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say." Exodus 4:10-12

It's a cool looking pad. I'm especially impressed by those 8 BIG white tiles behind the stove. Think of all the food splatter they'll protect in that one little space. No flaming woks or deep fried dishes at your house!

When's the house warming party?

Lynnette, the color of your kitchen is the same as my living room and the kids bedroom. I love baby blue!!! Well, not really, but I am not about to re-paint anything. Your place looks cozy, I know how you are feeling about having a place of your own. I am still jealous of your adventures, but not of the snow!!!

awwww... I love how it looks! Don't know about living with an unpressurized toilet, but it has the quaint apartment-like appearance down pat!
