Journal: Saturday 27 June 2009

Yay! Finally, today is moving day. We moved to the new room. It required only 2 tuk-tuk trips to take my bags and all of Da’s other stuff like the fridge, fan, table, chair and a huge box of unknown contents.

I’m happy to be in the new room. It’s bigger, brighter and quieter. Plus, it’s much closer to downtown on a much less bumpy road, so it won’t be such a hassle driving back and forth. The bathroom is not so big and the toilet doesn’t automatically flush, which means you have to pour water down it to flush it. But, there is a kitchen counter with a sink and a back door to allow a breeze to blow through. Also, I now have a wardrobe to hang my things.

Some things I still need to get to completely make it home:
  • Hangers
  • Rattan shelf
  • Two rattan lounge chairs (to chill out on the veranda)
  • Clothes bar to hang towels to dry
Finally after sweeping, moving the wardrobe and bed into better locations, putting some things away and making the bed we were both hot and sweaty and ready for lunch. Off to Common Grounds for lunch and a cool place to use the computer.

Today I had a grilled cheese sandwich that came with a really nice garden salad. Spent the rest of the afternoon chilling in the café. Dinner was a quick stop for fried rice, the back home to eat it. A fairly uneventful day.
