Townhouse, Car, Etc

As I said in my previous blog I was going to show you a couple pictures of
what my place and car look like so you can get an idea of how I am living. The townhouse that I live in is a tw0-story, three bedroom place. On the main level I have a living room (where I have a couch and T.V), dining room (where there is just a table for eating purposes), a kitchen, small bathroom and a garage for the car. It isn’t that big of an area for instance, when I sit on my couch I can see my dining room and kitchen all in one view. But, I don’t need that big of a place since it is just myself over here. The upstairs to my place has three bedrooms and a bathroom. Again there isn’t a lot of area upstairs but there is definitely plenty of room for just me. One of the bedrooms upstairs is empty while another has just a bed in it and there is my room where I have a bigger bed and closet space. Overall, I really enjoy the place I have over here and I really couldn’t ask for anything better. A couple of miscellaneous things involving my apt: there is NO carpet anywhere (everything is either tile or wood), my garage connects with my kitchen, my garage is where my washer and dryer are placed, and there is no central air or heat (there are heaters in every room that you have to turn on manually). Those are a couple of things that I found interesting in my townhouse.

My car is a four door foreign style car (don't even know the name) and it is an automatic. Apparently over here there are hardly any automatic cars and everyone usually drives manuals. It is a nice little ride that gets me from A to B equipped with a radio, CD player, heat, etc. There is a funny story involving the process of me getting a car. At first since I told them I haven't driven a stick-shift for along time they said they would get me an automatic, so I was cool with that. Well like I said earlier automatics are hard to come by so it took a little longer than normal to get a car. So they gave me a smart car right away!! Now I don't know if many of you have seen a smart car or have actually been inside one, but WOW was I scared driving that around. It is the smallest car I have ever been in and when I drove to go some where and it was windy out I could actually feel the car moving side to side from the wind. I was literally afraid that if someone
were to hit me while riding their BIKE that I would be the one with all the injuries haha! But, finally they got me a normal car and I wasn't so scared to be driving around the town. I will let you guys figure out which picture the smart car is :)!

Well, that is a little bit of what my living area is like and what my car looks like. As I said before I am really happy with how the team has set me up with such a nice place to live and a car to drive. Tomorrow we leave for an away game vs Le Mans. We play Saturday night at 8pm. I will let you know how the game was and all that jazz in the next post. Hope you enjoyed learning about my living arrangements and I will talk to you again soon. God Bless (Joshua 1:9).
