On Thursday we settled into our new home for the next three months. We are quite pleased with our little abode. It is has two bedrooms, one bath, and a small kitchen. It has been newly remodeled, meaning - when we arrived, a work crew was just finishing up setting the tiles in the kitchen.
Within no time, our kids had made friends. They were climbing the tree outside our apartment, having sword fights with ski poles and, Jake came away from his fall with only a few small flesh wounds. There is a family here from California who has been in Austria for the past 14 years and we've met an Iranian family who have just moved here in August.
Our apartment is ideally located for us as it is walking distance from the local train station (Lokalbahn), which we will take to get to the refugee ministry center, and is close to several small "Supermarkt"s. The following days have been filled with settling in, finding out the ins and outs of grocery shopping (including feeding a large family with micro-sized European quantities), getting monthly train tickets, exchanging money, along with recovering from a heavy dose of jetlag (or, as the boys keep saying --- jet leg).
"Ende gut, alles gut"
"All's well that ends well"
With that I will end my night,
