Moving On, with Cold Feet

So I moved out from my hostel, la clarière, to my studio in Puteaux (I guess it makes me a Putéolien].

The new studio is small, but spacious. It is also furnished, meaning that the nice owners have given me not only a sofa/bed and other furniture, but also utensils -- saucepans, spatulas, spoons, forks, plates, the works!

This studio is definitely better than the hostel room, primarily because of the much faster internet and the lack of noise, in addition to the proximity to Paris :). [BTW, the first thing I did after putting down my first suitcase -- install internet :)]

The only thing I did not realize was that I did not have my blanket while coming from the states! The hostel blanket having been returned, I was left blanketless on my first night at the new place :-|. Since I discovered this only at 10pm after coming back from a Janmashtami function, there was no store open for me to purchase one.

Needless to say, il a faisait très froid dans la nuit [it was cold in the night], mostly because my feet got cold :-|.

The good news, I got a blanket the very next day [i.e., yesterday], and all is well now :).

Next step: Buy a bicycle.

  3. The next time you put up a misleading title like that, remind me not to scream so that the windows in the house shatter - I thought you'd found your Banaras babe and were tying the knot or something.

    Beh.

    Anyway, enjoy your new place, you miserable worm.
