welcome to my home [away from home]

I have been so fortunate to have a home here in Cape Town that I really enjoy.  Usually on programs we stay in the same hotel as the guests, but that was not possible this time around due to the large quantity of guests. Originally I was bummed that I wouldn’t be staying in this hotel…then I saw my apartment.  It’s about a mile +/- walk to the office every day, and I love it.  To be honest, we’re somewhat in a safe bubble around here.  It’s well guarded and there are plenty of people around at all times.  I know this makes mom & grandma feel better J!  It does suck when it’s raining sideways but we make due.  So, without further adu allow me to show you around…

what I walk past on my way to work....

This is behind our apartment!

love our kitchen!!

great windows to our patio, large living and dining area.

cozy bedroom with great floor to ceiling windows!

Huge bathroom...still haven't figured out how to turn on the heated tile!

I still miss home so much, but I am glad I have a cozy, fun, safe place to stay while I am gone.

Can't wait for the USA game Saturday...turn on your TV and root for our boys!  If they win the next two I will get to see them here in Cape Town!!
