OK, so I was going to post a picture of my apartment slash room slash kitchen yesterday but I was dead tired and went to sleep after going through my suitcase like a lunatic (couldn’t find my towel – I swear I put it on a top when packing) so I have only one semi-good photo of my apartment (= not littered with my stuff). I’m sitting on my bed here so there is also a bed and a clothes rack on my left + a tiny shower room slash toilet. And while I love my A/C unit (trying not to think about its impact on the environment…), I loathe my fridge! It’s making strange noises all the time (kicking it helps but after 10 to 15 minutes it starts yelling again)! I had to wear earplugs to be able to sleep (and slept 16 hours…). BUT I also have a balcony which is awesome bc I will be able to “experience” Tokyo from above while working on my computer (on not-rainy and not-that-hot days).
It’s raining pretty hard today so I’ll probably just stay in and unpack (properly). I also have to learn how to use my air conditioner (my agent gave me a translation of the remote control but it’s still not easy to identify various Japanese characters) AND how to dispose of household garbage in a Japanese way (fortunately, I have a manual in English). I also got a how-not-to-get-mildewed manual because apparently that’s a real threat.
