Quick post to let you know that we have a place to stay! Last place we looked at, last place Cecile found for us to look at, yesterday afternoon when she checked the buildings in the neighborhood. Doesn’t have the view from the apartment that the other two had & isn’t as new, but it’s bigger, has a bigger kitchen, is literally across the street and down half a block making moving easier and cheaper, and it’s a little cheaper (although the commission is higher). And the view from the roof will knock your socks off, the whole harbor from Valparaiso up past Viña. We move in Saturday, March 1. Cecile is quite relieved.
So in the meantime, tomorrow we visit Joel’s school, Wednesday Cecile signs the papers for the apartment, Thursday we go get our ID cards, and in the mean time hopefully we go out to see the sites a bit. Joel still tires quickly, I’m feeling pretty normal aside from the fact that our bed is incredibly uncomfortable (Cecile actually slept on the other single bed in Joel’s room last night).
And finally, a picture I don’t think I’ve posted yet, of the apartment building cat where we’re staying. It’s domestic (i.e. not feral) & friendly so Joel & Cecile have both been able to get their cat fix.
