Yesterday I moved into a new apartment! I’m sharing a house with six other women, each from a different country: France, Germany, China, Colombia, and Belgium. (We are a hot, multilingual casa. Can you imagine the pillow fights?) The women are here for various reasons; a few are college students, one is a teacher on sabbatical, and the other moved here for a job. They are all incredibly friendly and patient with my limited Spanish, which is great given that it’s the only language spoken in the house.
I have a fantastic private room upstairs– la habitación verde (the green room), so named because all the details in the room are green. All of the rooms in the house have a different color theme.
Why don’t I show you around?
The two floors:
But the best part of all is that this window…
Leads to a private rooftop terrace!
This was a huge attraction for me when I looked at the apartment. On my first night here my roommates and I made dinner together and ate it on the terrace, listening to the colectivos (buses) whistle as they sped by in the dark. I love being close to the sounds of an urban environment again. Hopefully I will make a lot more friends to invite over for dinners on the terrace.
