The Red Angel
This is the Red Angel... my new vehicle! It's a SEAT (pronounced say-aww-t... kinda like at the doctor) I just got it this morning! Seems to drive alright, and I am slowly but surely getting used to driving a) a standard and b) in Europe! But actually, the standard part isn't as bad as I remember from my youth. No bunny hopping... a little screeching of the tires though. But then people just think I'm obnoxious and they don't suspect that I am just learning again! At least, I don't think they know... :)
I also have a contract to sign a contract for a lease of an apartment. It's absolutely massive. I seriously don't know what I will do with all that space! It's a big house that was made into 4 apartments. So I only have 3 neighbours. We have a fenced in yard with a gate, the other 3 people have a little garden plot, but on my little plot, they built a garage. So no problem parking for me! the apartment has 3 big bedrooms (one will be the living room/church location), a kitchen with a dischwasher and a decent freezer, a pantry, a storage room, an area for an office, a hallway, a big bathroom.... you get the drift. I should be able to move in on the 15th or so. It won't be furnished apart from what I've already mentioned, so I will have to buy... everything! But yes, there is an Ikea in the country... the only one is in Bratislava... not too far away! I'll send pictures once I have them!
