I am a champion loller and today was no different, I did it very well.
During one of my stronger more ambitious moments, I decided to go through the 20 million thousand photos I have in my computer... which as you know, whether it is an album or a computer, you can get lost for hours looking at photos.
I am going to share some. There is a theme to this .. These photos will give you a tiny look at the progress we have made... from the hotel we stayed in when visiting, to the first sight of this apartment with our realtor to the months of destruction/construcion when we wondered if we were truly insane and how come both of us got crazy at the same time ?
And then the early days of echoing empty rooms and not enough furniture and then slowly it became our home.. So here they are ... you can go get a soda and some popcorn if it will make it less boring to be trapped in your chair, being shown my photo album ..
When we visited Buenos Aires, we stayed at the Art Suites Hotel. Each room is a tiny apartment. We had a room at the top with a terrace and little kitchenette.. first taste of what it might be like to live here.
One day, we went to look at an apartment with our realtor and of course, he showed us something too expensive and huge. I was walking along the sidewalk, grumbling under my breath when I looked up and saw a sign... Vende. An apartment for sale in an old French building. Right there on the street, the realtor called, got us an appointment to see it the next day.
The kitchen was pretty bad. We had to completely renovate, when I thought it just needed paint.
Bathroom after .. then after .. and after
This elevator pretty much won me over as soon as we came into the building for the first time.
