I’ve uploaded photos of the apartment, but not really described it!  We live about 8 minutes walking distance from the school (5 minutes for most walkers).  We’re in a residential area with many single family homes in the area.  Yes, I need to get some photos of them!  They appear to be very nice homes.  They have huge 2 car garages which protrude from the front of the building with the home sitting back from the street.  They are all two story homes, and brick because of the climate.

We live in one of the few apt. buidings on the street on the 6th floor of a 10 floor building.  There is an elevator, stairs, security guard and locked security gate.  Our place has a living room/dining room area, kitchen (stove top, no oven) which leads to a washroom, porch area, two bedrooms, a japanese tea room, a balcony off the living room and two bathrooms, one with a tub/shower and the other with a shower.  There are air conditioning units in two of the bedrooms and a ceiling fan in the living room.  The place stays amazingly cool!  It came furnished.

Other than that, I can say that it’s Saturday and I’m at work.  The students are outside for assembly because we’re following the monday schedule.  There is a lot more talking and applauding than usual, I wonder what I’m missing?  I also keep hearing bagpipes!
