Alright, fools. I finally give you: my Costa Rican abode.
Here is what you see right when you walk in:
To the right is my bedroom, there is my living dining area on the left. My table and couch are pretty close to each other, but that’s okay.
If you turned left 90 degrees, you’d see this:
That is syrup on my table. I had waffles for breakfast. You can also see my super long Cat 5 cable that I use instead of having a wireless router. I’m cool. And oh hey, there’s my air conditioner up there on the wall.
If you turn left 90 degrees again, you see this:
Entrance to bedroom on the left, Kitchen, with laundry room to the right, and front door, with reminder to turn off my AC. Oh, and a lid to a tupperware container that i put my shoes on when they’re wet, which is often.
Close-up of kitchen:
Then if you turned 90 degrees again, you’d be looking into my bedroom. It’s separated by sliding doors.
The basics. Bed with fuchsia sheets for living alone girlyness, nightstand with water, journal, bible, kindle, the bookshelf upon which I keep some important documents, an old magazine, and my Button Bouquet that I WILL make before I leave here. Then my coat rack with scarves and bags in the corner and my internet connection/cables that have no home.
If you look to the right you see my closet and the entrance to the bathroom:
I really like my closet. This organizing side is good, my hanging clothes are on the other side. I brought everything I have here with me in those suitcases up there. And that little one on the right was inside one of them. Not bad, I’d say. This kinda shows how tall my ceilings are…They’re vaulted and i think the highest is 13 or 14 feet. It’s nice.
Onto the bathroom:
I keep my make up on the counter, because storage is limited. My friend B has a whole drawer where her make up is spread out all beautifully and organized in it. Jealous. Also, I barely brought any make up; Just 5 bottles of sunscreen, since I’m basically on the equator.
My shower is interesting. I don’t know how well you can tell, but it has an overhead shower head, a handheld one, and then on that gray thing there are spouts that spray straight horizontal. They are pretty crazy, and I use them for cleaning the shower. I don’t know what else they’d be used for because I personally don’t like being shot point blank with water. Also, the other morning there were some men outside my window power-washing the building. I did not shower that morning*. Or pee.
Then we come to what might be my favorite part, the view.
When you go on my balcony and look left, you see:
The picture of clouds I posted yesterday shows what you see when you look to the right.
So, friends, (sorry I called you fools earlier. I was in a mood.) that’s where I live. Not even close to being a hut or somewhere dirty or scary, huh mom?
*I usually shower at night so this isn’t as gross as it sounds.
