House Hunting

The reason we went to Muss00rie was to look for a place to live. We were not planning on spending the night, but because Monday was so unsuccessful we thought it wise. Yesterday the first place we looked at was ok. It had two rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. But when we asked how much it was the guy said 18 lek, which is about $4000. We didn’t understand at first, but then it became clear that they were for sale, not for rent! HA!! As “tourists” can we even own any property?
Today we saw four places, but looked around and walked around, and asked around all day!! And by all day I mean from about 10amish to 5:30ish. We finally decided on the first rental we saw. Well, sort of. We don’t know for sure how much it will be yet, but we will in a could days. It’s a cute little place. It has a dinning room/living room and a kitchen down stairs and upstairs there are two bed rooms and a bathroom. All of us are going to live here for the first month until we can find a second place, at which point either Suzy and I or the Clovers will move.
It was a long, tiring task, but we didn’t really have much of a choice. It was fun at times though too. We did a little bit of cloth shopping and we made several contacts too. So, all in all it was a good trip.
