So, you’ve seen (per the last post) the “moving van.” I thought I’d share a bit about what happened on move-in day and then a short video of what my new pad looks like all finished and furnished.
I got pretty worried that I wasn’t going to be able to move in on “move-in day,” almost solely because I couldn’t get my landlord to give me the key. So, we negotiated an agreement for him to change the lock during the morning, and I would return that afternoon at three to pick up the key, go back to my house, load the donkey, and move. And strangely enough, it all worked out like that perfectly.
But it got even better. Several volunteers were returning from vacation and crashed with me, throwing a “housewarming” party of sorts complete with taco fajitas (we made the fajitas from scratch) and a riveting game of Scrabble. The next night, another volunteer who got stuck in town had to crash at my place, so we had leftover rice, macaroni, and watched “Eat, Pray, Love,” which I make no comment about.
Anyway, here’s the video, and alternatively, you can find pictures on my Flickr page:
Oh, and I reopened Facebook. Add me, Peace Corps folks.
