My apartment!!


I am officially "settled" into my little one room apartment in Samokov!

Here is my cozy bedroom/living room.













Who know my very first apartment would be in a Former-Soviet Block Building? In BULGARIA!?!?!?

Hehe, I love life... and my perfect view of people watching from my balcony!

There are about 40,000 people in Samokov... I want to say about 20,000 of those live here in the Blocks with me...







My itty bitty little kitchen! Complete with a bed and washing machine... obviously.

Bit enough to feed 6 people on one of my first nights here! A bit tight though... :)

Even though the washing machine is a hot commodity for volunteers here, it doesn't work. But that's necessarily a bad thing - because otherwise I would have washed an ENTIRE load of laundry in bleach, instead of just handwashing a couple pairs of jeans in it... Even though I can't read in Bulgarian, word to the wise: the little pictures on detergent bottles are VERY helpful.

How fun - an adorable place for sure! :) Thanks for the great pics - I can just imagine it. And glad you don't have all of your clothes with bleach spots! Stories to tell . . .
Love,
Suebee :)
