We were squeeking a bit in our early days here, because of the apartment we moved into. The couple before us had used this apartment, partially because of it's location. The location was good, but what we found was equally as convenient in terms of location, but had a few 'EXTRAS" that we favored.
The entrance to almost all apartments we've seen is through a heavy metal door. This one is from the old location.
Because of the building boom here in Yekaterinburg, the new apartment we found was certainly more modern, roomier, and just simply more comfortable for old folks like us!
As a result of several visits to local members, we have also noticed the spectrum of apartments in terms of space, facilities, and the modernness of each.
This is the NEW place! Here are some comparison, side by side:
To say that we are thoroughly delighted with our "new digs," is a statement that is right on the mark. We live on the 6th floor and have windows that look out each side of the building. On the one side, we see the parking and the play grounds for the children. On the other side we see the street below and the houses that line the street. This is the view of our apartment from the street below.
Now, to those of you who are, "Where's Waldo" fans, here is a new version of "Find Grandma."
Can you see her waving HELLO, from Yekaterinburg?
WE LOVE IT HERE!
