So this is our "teeny weeny" apartment. It will be perfect for us. I did some rearranging of the furniture and now it is much more open. I haven't had much chance to explore the grounds yet, but there is a little outside courtyard. The staff are very friendly and ready to meet my needs...all except the coffee pot. No coffee pot...I cried, they laughed. Tomorrow morning I'm heading out with my friend Pandey to go get numerous items I will need, mostly food, but I do need to throw in a coffee maker, more towels and other miscellaneous items. As you all know, I'm on a strict budget, so only necessities.
My apartment is next door to the Radisson Hotel, so I do believe there will be some swimming involved. It should be a great place to take Junu and get her use to the water, I'm curious how she will like it. Also, I am located near a lot of shops and restaurants, so it will be nice to see what is "out there" and what we can explore within walking distance, which reminds me, I need to get a map.
Overall, I am feeling good. I am very excited about getting Junu. I am also a bit nervous...just wanting her to feel safe and happy. I know there will be some tears involved as the orphanage is all that she has known, but in just a short period of time that will change especially once she sees and feels all the love that is awaiting her. In the meantime, I am going to try and get a bit more rest. Haven't really slept much in 3 days, but I still feel great....on a natural high.
Look forward to share more soon. Much love, Sharlyn
