Hooray! Kostia and I moved in to our apartment today! We were, in the end, a little sad to leave the dormitory — it was a nice community of international students. But we really like the apartment and the neighborhood a lot, and we’re so much closer to the university.

We went to the secondhand shop today to get kitchen basics. It’s a Salvation Army, but you can tell Falun’s an affluent town in an affluent country because everything is really nice. And it doesn’t even smell like old clothes. We got silverware, plates, bowls, pots and pans, lamps and chairs.

I’ll post some pictures soon. I should also post some pictures of our dorm that I took last week. Like I said, for a dorm, it was really nice. But there comes a point when one can no longer share a kitchen with other people, fruit flies, and dirty dishes.
