Tomorrow We Move
Already we are face to face with the end of our first month here. This means that we must say goodbye to our Lindenthaler ground-floor apartment, with its patio and its adorable backyard and its ten-minute walk to the university. Tomorrow evening a taxi will move us and all our junk south to the Marienburg neighborhood. We haven't seen the new place yet, but I'm sure it'll meet our needs just fine. Like the place we called home this month, it is a University guest house, and presumably comparable in quality. The major adjustment will be the twenty to thirty-minute commute to campus by bus, but on the flipside the new place is very near the Rhine, and at least fifty euros cheaper per month than our current place. So more money for Apple Schorle.... But even this new place is temporary. In September we settle into long-term digs just off Zulpicherstrasse, situated closest of the three to the university, and cheapest in terms of rent. Kelly has seen pictures of the September place, and reports that it has a deck and looks nice.
