With less than 11 days until we fly out, seems like it's a good time to finally post my "apartment tour" I promised... oh, I don't know... 5 months ago.
So a bit of background.
We live on campus and it turns out campus is a rather beautiful place, especially in the Spring. Campus housing takes up a small but significant footprint of the acreage and there are three main buildings with a playground/grilling area for staff to use. We also have access to the facilities on the main school grounds. The downside to campus life is that there isn't much privacy. If you are grilling out or out playing, chances are at least one other family has a similar idea. Not always a bad thing, but it's one of those things to be considered. We feel incredibly blessed as our apartment is quite out-of-reach. We are nearly ground floor and have a semi-private area of shaded grass off our balcony. Granted many others can use this as well, but few do and we've enjoyed quite a few Sunday mornings out there with just us and the kids.
Our building entrance is just a small half-flight of stairs (you can see it in this post, along with other photos of our apartment on our first night in India). This post will only show the entrance and main living areas of the house (basically two rooms with a kitchen off of the dining area). So here are the photos with explanations in the captions. At the end I'll post a YouTube video of the same space for those who are a bit spatially impaired or want to see the amateur skills.
|From the vantage point of the master bedroom hallway - front door is on the left of the picture, living room ahead, and kitchen just to the right, out of camera view.|
|Same vantage point as the photo above, but you see the kitchen and the dining area.|
|Awful lighting, but a panoramic of our living room. Access to the balcony is to the right.|
|Much more civilized lighting. View of the living room.|
|Vantage point from the rock wall corner of the living room. Looking towards the dining room/entrance.|
|Panoramic of the kitchen. It's not clean as Evan was cooking bacon. Bacon. Any mess is acceptable when bacon is involved.|
|Dining area. Kitchen is to the left and master bedroom hall is on the right/ahead in the photo. Vantage point from the front door.|
Now for the YouTube link of the amazing video:
