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. 🙂
