we recently moved to a new apartment that is closer to the other consulate residences and to better restaurants. we’re still surrounded by boxes since we’re making a concerted effort to sort and purge our stuff, but we’re much happier here. if nothing else, we’re no longer stuck in the old traffic patterns, which means that every trip takes about 20 minutes less than it did when we were in our house. the dog has a good-sized yard in which to chase it, the mysterious thing in our garden that he fruitlessly hunted for the first year; it seems to have come with us.
i go to bhutan on next week via kolkata (calcutta). photos to come.
