New Apartment!

We've been in our new apartment exactly a week and we really love it. It's just the right size for two people (especially a couple). It's so nice to be out of the hostel, we were getting extremely claustrophobic staying in a room with 10 beds. LOKI Hostel is known as a party hostel, and yes it is a fun place to party, but not really a fun place to live for a month. The lack of personal space was really taking a toll on us and I felt really bad for Arielle because she had to work at her computer in the hostel bar (it was the only area with Wi-Fi) every weekday. We have a much more stable internet connection here at the apartment and other nice amenities such as gas stove and oven, cable tv, and comfortable bed and furniture. It is located about a quarter of a mile from the Plaza de Armas on the hill, there are a couple nice parks in the neighborhood and a few corner stores at the end of our street for when we run out of milk, bread, or beer. There is a commercial area about four blocks from our place that has a couple supermarkets, hardware and home amenities stores, and dentist offices. I'm sure there are many more relevant things in our neighborhood but we haven't really explored as much as we'd like too. We do finally feel settled and that we're making a home for ourselves here, now all we need is to get our and do more. I'm posting a video Arielle made of our apartment so everyone can get a feel for where we live, Ciao.
