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.
