Moving in

We all made it to our new homes safe and sound last night.  I can’t believe that Casey, Leah, and I, plus our 5 suitcases + some odd bags AND Carlos and Cristina, all fit in one little hatchback!  Incredible.  Casey and I are now living in an apartment about 8 blocks from the university.  Our host mom’s name is Beatriz and she’s very sweet!  We’re so lucky she was able to take us in on such short notice—she was traveling in Italy during the first part of the semester.  I haven’t unpacked yet—I will after I close this—but here are some pictures:

My new room! More floor space when I unpack...

I believe that everything is cuter in miniature form—candy, makeup, office supplies, you name it.  My new room may not be very big, but that makes me love it even more.  I have a tiny closet, a perfect-sized bed, a desk just big enough for my laptop and a lamp, a little window (check out those adorable curtains)…what more do I need?  Nothing, that’s what!

All for now…my laptop battery is almost gone and I have homework and some serious unpacking to do.

    8 blocks from the university – score! That means more time to sleep in the morning, right? 🙂 I know a move mid-semester might not have been on your “must do” list if you had a choice, but I’m proud of you for handling it with grace and good humor.
