apartment search and musical aspirations

July 25, 2010

the madrid apartment search is full speed ahead. i can’t actually commit to anything yet since 1. the apartments listed are for an august move in and 2. we don’t know if certain apartments truly exist. i was contacted by the classic scam artist. awesome apartment/great price/great location/owner isn’t worried about the money, just wants a “good person”/owner is doing humanitarian work in nigeria and needs the money wired through western union…

i have our potential neighborhoods whittled down to La Latina (connie says specifically the “almonso martinez” part) or salamanca (goya). La Latina is suppose to be classic madrid living with lovely architecture but with older buildings that might not have certain comforts (like heat). Goya is a bit uppity, but is near our tefl program and Spanish language school. pretty tree lined streets and a beautiful park to spend our days reading and lounging. i’m thinking about how to maximize my self indulgence during this trip and considering buying an apple piano keyboard to learn the piano on. maybe i will have enough learning with the language barrier though. -b
