Here is a photo tour of my new apartment. I took these pictures yesterday after I've been unpacking and settling in for a few days.
This is the hallway on my floor (13, hahaha!). It is kind of grubby, and the lights go out when you don't move for more than 60 seconds. The first floor landing is really yuck, so I was a little trepidatious by this time.
Closer... there are 4 doors on each end of the hallway. Mine is the first on the right, not seen in this photo but you get the idea.
And, looking into the door... yay! It's beautiful inside!
The living room as seen from the entry hall. The kitchen is on the left, master bedroom in the middle, small bedroom on the right.
Looking to the right, you can see the small bedroom doorway and the big decorative bookshelf.
Turning more right, looking back toward the entry. The bathroom door is in the entry hall.
Turning more to the right, the wraparound sofa. I have covered part of it with sheets to make it more comfortable.
Looking straight into the bathroom doorway.
Looking to the left, my washing machine and hot water tank.
Looking to the right, the shower. The floor in here is not slanted properly for the water to go down the drain (normal in every bathroom I've seen here so far), so I have to mop the floor after each shower. BUT, I am still grateful to have a shower.
And the toilet, which, since the water to the toilet is currently out of service, I flush using the pink basin. Apparently the water is on a different line than everything else, and there is apparently no estimate as to when it will be operational again. I wonder if it means the toilet uses reclaimed water.
The kitchen, just big enough for me and the cockroaches. The new microwave is still in its box on the floor because I don't want to give up my tiny counter space for it. Looking for a small table to put it on.
View from the kitchen and bedroom windows, from right to left.
And looking straight down.
There is a tiny sitting garden at the base of the building.
The master bedroom from left to right.
My laundry area.
My computer desk - the hard metal stool has now been replaced by a wooden chair which both looks and feels much better.
This apartment has lots of closet space in both bedrooms. Since the king bed takes up this whole room, I use this closet for storage and have my clothes in the other room.
The head of the bed, and you can see there is a lovely opaque etched glass window between this and the other bedroom (which is pretty, but makes me glad I live alone).
The etched glass window as seen from inside the smaller bedroom. The left wall of the small room is also opaque glass (or plastic) and is the back of the decorative bookcase in the living room.
The closet of the small bedroom. The box from the refrigerator is still in there.
