Meine Neue Wohnung
Yesterday I moved to a permanent flat that I'm renting from an old lady who runs an antique store in downtown Waidhofen. It has the reassuring smell of a summer cottage that hasn't been rented since the fall of the Berlin Wall, plus there are chickens in the backyard that I suspect may produce free eggs for me. The rent is only €230 per month, which I'm very happy about.
Also yesterday I picked up two boxes of goodies that were left for me by my predecessor in the schools. The boxes included plates, bowls, pans, a portable DVD player, The Princess Bride in German, condoms, two cameras, tea, spices, and a bike.* Christmas (Weihnachtsfest) came early.
*To be clear, the bike was not in the boxes, but rather came with them.
