From the street view our house just looks like a garage door set in a wall, but when you open that door you see a courtyard with two garden areas in the middle. Our landlord is a bit of a gardener and he has tomatoes, corn, peppers, and much, much more growing in our courtyard.
|Entrance to our apartment|
|The courtyard – our apartment is at the end on the second floor.|
|Our washing machine – hand driven.|
We have six rooms, all with a door that opens onto the courtyard, or the balcony in our case.
|From the left – the bathroom, our bedroom, the “clothes drying room”, the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen.|
|The kitchen (panorama view, which distorts it a little). Note the pass-through window in the wall on the left.|
|The dining room. Who needs more than a table and two chairs? Note the little pass-through window in the wall on the right.|
|The living room. The couches are pretty small.|
|The clothes drying / project room. This was the wardrobe before assembly.|
|The wardrobe after assembly.|
|The bedroom. We’re waiting for a frame for the bed, and a desk for Molly. The newly finished wardrobe is on the left.|
|The bathroom (panorama view makes it look bigger than it really is).|
The view from our casa is quite spectacular.
|The view – the pointy, red mountain is the Cerro de la Cruz (hill of the cross), and the one just to the right in the distance is called Elephant Hill.|
