Still Living the Adventure

Our Apartment August 18, 2009

Filed under: Life in NA — kgnorman @ 8:36 PM

I’ve decided that this blog will mostly be an avenue to share photos and quick stories.  Perhaps it will morph into something with  more literary content, but you’ll have to be satisfied with a few thousand words by way of our snapshots of life in Africa.

Today’s pictures show our apartment.  We just moved in on Sunday afternoon.  Thankfully, the family before us is leaving all of their furniture for us to use while they’re back home for a year.  We are so grateful for their generosity and trust to lend us all of their stuff — check out the leather couch and chairs!!!  It has 3 bedrooms, a washing machine, twin balconies, 5-burner gas stove, furniture, and 10-foot ceilings.  We’re really roughing it.

Enough text — here are the pictures!

Our "salon" -- what you see if you look straight ahead when you enter our front door.

Notice the nice leather couches and TV!  There is a nice balcony through the sliding door as well.

Our little bedroom -- we took off all of the closet doors and will be replacing them with curtains.
