Today marks day 1 in my new apartment with Janelle, another American girl. Day 1 of emailing and blogging from our Warm Room.
Our apartment in the winter here can be chilly, so Janelle blocked off the living room with cushions and furniture. She then moved the soba, which is a space heater, into the living room... and now the room gets toasty as the heat is trapped in the small space. Now, a problem arises if I need to go to the bathroom or to my bedroom or kitchen, but then we can run back to the Warm Room. Ahhh.
So far, I have yet to be cold since I am busy unpacking my 200 pounds that flew with me across the world. (Weather these last two days has been pretty mild too.) I look forward to falling alseep in my home and waking up to the Call to Prayer and bright Middle Eastern sun.
Pictures will be posted soon...
