For being something provided gratis by my employer, I can’t really complain – it’s actually a lot nicer than I expected.
To the left of the main room is the oddest potion of this apartment – the bathroom. Inside is a commode and a showerhead – but they’re combined in one room (the shower’s not in a separate bathtub like we’re used to). There’s also no sink, but there is mirror by the shower head to look at your pretty self. No putting a book on top of the toilet – taking a shower means anything in the room will get wet. On the positive side, there’s plenty of maneuver around – no more baby steps while showering to avoid losing one’s balance.
On the whole, the apartment is functional, relatively clean, and definitely meant for one person. A number of things are different about it when compared to an American apartment, but many of them are tiny differences when compared to the language barrier and other things. There’s plenty of stuff left over from previous residents, so I’m not hurting for pots and pans, cups, etc. Now it’s time to move on and explore some more of this city – my computer time is almost up!
