We are celebrating a week in our new apartment. It is located right across the street from our school. The apartment is nearly 2000 square feet with quaint sloping ceilings on three sides. We are on the top (third) floor up a flight of stairs. Because we are on the top floor we enter through a hobbit door about 5 and 3/4 feet tall (watch your head - George, not Kevin). There are three dormer windows and three skylights. It feels very spacious. There are three bedrooms - one for visitors (all are welcome) and one for an office. The apartment building is small (only six apartments), so we have views out three sides. Most views are of the city skyline. The city is really growing, with many modern buildings, mainly with investment by Russians. I can see more than 15 construction cranes out of our windows. But nearer our place many village homes still exist. It is a quiet, old-world neighborhood. I will do a future post on some of the old village houses. The colors and wooden window trim decorations are amazing.
