Guest Post: Apartment Update

Hi faithful readers: it's Matt here. Erika's graciously agreed to let me do a guest post now and again (she's always gracious, isn't she?). I've got a quick update on the apartment search.

We found one! Or, at least, we've put in an offer of sorts. After seeing about a dozen places, we found a really nice apartment in the Yau Ma Tei area of Kowloon. We're having an agent talk to the landlord - and we should know if we get it in a few days. It has the nicest kitchen we've seen, bright light, and it's super-clean. That's a rarity here. It's about a five-minute walk from my office, and I could walk most of the way underground, if it was a hot or rainy day . . . like most of them here.

For you future guests out there, it's a great basecamp for seeing HK - right in the heart of Kowloon, about a 2 minute walk to the subway station, and just a few blocks from places that every tourist should see. We'll give you the rest of the cool details when we hear for sure - so keep a finger crossed for us, and stay tuned.

Hooray! I'm so happy about your apartment searching success! We'll definitely add that to our list of praises this week!

Thanks for updating the blog this weekend...I was going through withdrawal. :)

dad gum it (yes and my father used to say this when he was mad instead of cursing-pretty funny). I forget to check this post. Pretty busy here. Erica, I found the Taiwan girl on myspace (the one that I told you who is the missionary) if she accepts my friendship I will tell you where to find her. Have fun with the apartment. I am tired. I should go to bed.
