Our Apartment in Tien Mu, Taipei

Ok I'm slow! Here are pics of the new pad and neighborhood - some of you have seen these already. I have to wait for my USB thingy for my camera to arrive before I can post new pics. So sorry...it should be here in a few days. It's stuck in customs. Our apartment is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath. It's 1250 square feet - but that's because there's only one closet! The second picture is our bedroom - I love the pine tree - the needles look like fingers. Very pretty. I really love the area - it's so vibrant. There's so much to see - millions of little shops - vendors selling all sorts of food (the majority of which is still a mystery to me!). I'm afraid either myself or Anjoli will get run over by a scooter while checking everything out. ( They whizz by so fast and never stop for pedestrians). We have an amazing bakery right around the corner - the bread is to die for. Anjoli is a big fan of their croissants.
The funny thing is our little street (ok it's an ALLEY) is so quiet. I figured living in the city would be very loud - but that's not the case, thankfully! Only hitch is our neighbors upstairs are renovating so it's "hammer time" all day long, starting at 9 a.m. sharp. It's ok, I'm not complaining.
I have so much to share - funny language confusion stories...don't worry - they're coming! It's just overwhelming at this point...I don't know where to start.

Be back soon - hope all is well back in the states! I have to admit I'm already a little homesick...

Oh wow! It must be so very neat to be wandering around Taipei. (And probably a little unnerving as well.) That apartment looks really nice. Sharp and clean!

I'm doing well... keeping myself extremely busy. Andrew is being such a wonderful support. I've started working out regularly, and have once again rearranged the furniture.

How are you holding up? Sending happiness wishes in the direction of Taipei!

Ack I miss you so much! Just looking at your pictures made me feel alittle homesick. . .even though I've never been to any asian country. Weird? I guess I'll always have itchy travel feet. I'm so glad you're happy.
