I have spent the last few days fixing up the house and moving all of my things into it. I packed way too much. If you`re thinking of joining Peace Corps, UNDERPACK. It is easy to find things in Asuncion, and I brought way too much. Here is a quick tour of my house-
|Inside the house. I am probably eventually going to get a new fridge and use this one as a pantry.|
|The porch is actually bigger than the inside of the house. Provides some much needed sombra!|
|Yay for a bike! No more six mile walks for a while!|
I am super-happy in my new digs. There is still some work to be done, but over all I think it is going to work out great! It`s close enough that I can still hang out with Rodrigo and Rolando (my landlord`s nephews), and I get to use their shower and toilet, as well as their running water. So yay for that! Eventually I want to run a pipe down so I can have a spicket closer to the house. It is kind of a pain to make the trip down that hill with a bucket.
In the coming weeks I am going to be building a fence for my garden. I started my compost pile yesterday, and the soil is in desperate need of rejuvenation. It`s like a concrete parking lot out there.
Well, gotta go do some grocery shopping! I get to cook for myself now!
