we have finally arrived in corsica! we've been here a few days and i am already sick of trying to speak french. ha. just kidding, mostly.
we don't have internet hooked up yet, which is why i have not yet bombarded you with our russian tales of adventure. we're looking at a week or two still until we have ADSL hooked up. our containers have still not arrived yet, and so i must use the master's laptop, when he lets me. i suppose i should not complain as he is actually working when he uses it :)
so far things are going well here in the isle of beauty. we now have a bank account, car insurance, a phone number in our name, and as of this afternoon, a kitchen full of groceries. the aisles of cheese were overwhelming, so we're going to try one a week or so in order to see what we like. we are actually living in a different place than we thought we would, which is definitely ok with us. our new place is a bit larger. the original place was the place h's butcher grandpa kept the animals before he killed him. our current digs were the actual butcher shop back in the day. of course it has been converted into a suite, complete with french doors off the bedroom. are they still called french doors if they are actually french? hmm.
the only thing is the place is quite dirty and we all know how much i love to clean. however, when we are talking mice dropping, there really is no discussion or whether or not to clean. oh and our bathroom is entirely pink...the toilet, tiles, bathtub all different and not matching shades of pink. and today i bought pink toilet paper to match. i looked for the cool green toilet paper we had in a hotel in russia, but alas i could not find any. it would not have matched with the color scheme anyway.
we don't have tv yet either, so it has been frustrating to keep up with what is happening in the world. the hurricane in and around louisiana looks absolutely horrible. i can't imagine getting flooded out of my home. well as i now live on the side of a mountain, that will probably be unlikely to happen.
sorry for the absolute boringness of this post. but i am trying to squish in five minutes of blogging while henri is using the facilities. gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
thanks for all your comments and wondering where the heck i am in this huge world. our three weeks in russia were just fantastic and i look forward to sharing when i get some interenet access.
