Here is a shot of the living room.
The offer was accepted and now we are just waiting for the contracts to be drawn up and for the kitchen remodel to be done. We were hoping to get in this next week but it looks like we won't be able to move in until August 25th.
Here is our future kitchen where we'll cook some killer food that can be shared with university students and build community around our table.
Speaking of first impressions... we got to meet our new land lady 2 days ago. As we talked (through our real estate agent as our translator), about the apartment, utilities and all the fun details of moving in, the land lady seemed super cool. Hopefully we came across well in our first meeting too. I say that because about a week ago I started to come down with a rash called impetigo that I used to get every year as a kid. It's a staph infection that itches like crazy and can spread if you itch it.
