well, matt and i have decided to start the apartment hunt again this month. the decision was made due to 2 gorgeous apartments coming up into my radar. i had to see them. i have just returned from the first.
1e Tuindwarsstraat 8-II was gorgeous. 2 floors, with one nice-sized terrace off the back bedroom, and a roof terrace planned with an entrance from the same bedroom (agreement with neighbors already taken care of, new roof laid, stairs/door made, permit applied for). the view out the windows was not bad, for the jordaan. mostly open view, only one window into someone else’s apartment. the kitchen/dining/livingroom space was wonderful. really excellent. very nice kitchen. problems: parking (both for motorcycles and bicycles), storage. there is enough daily storage in the apartment, but no bigger and less-accessible storage, for such things as old books and … luggage. will decide later tonight if we will bid on it.
next week i will see the other, and comment.
i know, i never commented on summer darkness. 🙂 i had a great, if sober and uncaffeinated, time. it was fantastic to see so many people, and finally find quieter spaces to chat with them. i have happily discovered that i love going to tivoli
oops. leaving early. gotta run! joining a colleague out shopping. 🙂
Hi. It’s was fantasic meeting you two. Our first summer darkness was great!
Sober and uncaffeinated? Hmmm… that doesn’t sound like the you I know…

yeah well. i had a UTI, and was on antibiotics. lovely fun. hope you and family are well. sorry my present didn’t get to you.
Wait… you would give up a houseboat for… something else? Am I missing something?
i would give up a houseboat for a big room with high ceilings and good acoustics. i miss singing in my livingroom. 🙂 oh, and i miss my beloved oven. living with a combi oven sucks the big one.
where are you in october? we’ll be in WA. for a few days.
The Jordaan is just the best ever neighbourhood you could ever want to live 😉
I’m biased I guess 😉
heh. everyone’s biased. hard to avoid. 🙂
i like the area. but i don’t always like the apartments. many windows just look into other people’s windows. not so nice, actually. but who knows? i’ve seen some gorgeous ones, too.
