Finally, after three weeks we are in our apartment. The kitchen is narrow but easy to work in. The living room and dining area is large and for now we have a table, 4 chairs, a couch, a used steroe system we found and an area rug. The walls are bare until we bring some pictures from the Institute. Our bedroom is big enough for a king size bed which is really comfortable so Mark is happy. There is no running hot water in the kitchen so we heat our water to wash our dishes. There is a water heater, but it is very expensive to run so we have not hooked it up. The stove and oven is gas so we have 3 small square windows with metal grates to ventilate the stove. I am not sure how we will have hot water for our washing machine, but probably we will heat some water to fill the washing maching with some hot water. The two bathrooms have an electric water heater above the showerhead so the showers are nice and warm. Overall, we really enjoy the apartment. We are on the sixth floor and the elevator is very small. Mark said it reminded him of the elevator in the movie "Thoroughly Modern Milly". He wants to tap dance everytime we get into the elevator.
