Home is where your flat is!

After days of exhausting search we finally found a suitable apartment! As there is still a rusty pipe to fix and a bed missing it will be a few days until we can move in but we are relived to have one less thing one our mind.

It is located in the heart of Wan Chai so we have any possible means of public transit to get to work or to Kowloon. The size is just under 500square-feet (45 square meters), it has a new kitchen and for guests a sofa-sleeper. On the contrary we still need to do some handy work and get a table `plus chairs.

Many thanks go to the mother of our friend Joyce who helped us prodigiously by checking all conditions of rent and talking to the real estate agent. Without her we would not have a flat yet as we were anxious to get fooled.
Now we are tremendously more confident that we found a good place to stay.

Pictures will follow after the renovation is done--> August 26th.

Tomorrow [yesterday due to weak internet connection this post was not published ] we will leave Hong Kong to visit Macao as we want to activate Cornelius's Visa to apply for a Hong Kong ID-Card. In the next days we will open a bank account at HSBC, get us registered at the embassy and of course meet new interesting people.

Welcome abroad to all the other volunteers who arrived at their final destination :)

  1. em Macau eles falam português. Foi colônia portuguesa até o século passado e ainda preserva muito da arquitetura conquistadora jesuítica. Did you listen my language there? Angelo =)
