Today we finally got full details of the apartment we will be living in for the next three years. Yay! I’m pleased to report that it is in a nice looking area with all the amenities we could dream of within spitting distance, and the apartment itself is about twice the size of where we live now. (Although, a nice new shoebox would be a vast improvement on where we live now, quite frankly…). Our contacts in the area have confirmed that it is in one of the better parts of the city so that should be one less thing to be fretting about.
In more exciting news (for me at least!) we have got tickets to see Kiss at our local venue two weeks after we arrive in the USA. This was one the big things on my to do list of stereotypical American stuff, but I really didn’t think I’d be ticking it off quite so soon! As it’s an outdoor venue, I will be covered in mozzie bites by the end of that night, but it will be worth it (wonder if they sell Kiss-branded antihistamines or mozzie spray? They’ve got pretty much every other type of merchandise covered …)
