Our Apartment--Oct 2015

After five long weeks in a hotel...we finally moved into our apartment on 17 October!

Left: the entry to the parking area on the ground floor of our apartment building.  It is called "Kelam Classic Apartments". We even have our own parking stall! Just nothing to park there.
Right: the view out of our living room windows.

President Chinna and his brother, Ramesh, negotiate with the owner and the watchman.

Our entry door.  The glass all has a light tint to block out some of the bright sun.

Living room/dining area

This will be our office--don't you love the color combinations?

The kitchen is very small

There are two bathrooms about the same size--one off the office and one off our bedroom. Both are a shower room with a toilet and a sink! Our bedroom has a little more subdued colors--orange and yellow with brown and tan cabinets.

The refrigerator won't fit in the kitchen so it is in the dining room.  Air conditioning is a MUST here in Rajahmundry, then fans.  We have an air conditioner in the office and the bedroom and fans in each of the other rooms.  Our water purifier is great! It is reverse osmosis-quality water with a bunch of filters. We even got a combination microwave and convection oven. 

Putting the finishing touches to our office--and the REALLY FIRM bed. It's the only kind you can get here in India. We were asked if we wanted two mattresses--it wouldn't be any softer, just higher.

Our living room. Yes, we do have two HUGE batteries and a UPS unit in our living room...that's India!

Our large and spacious kitchen...NOT!
The stove top is propane fired with 5 liter bottles under the cabinet. The sink looks like a chemistry lab, but it's not. Just a few water lines between the outside water source, the water purifier and the hot water geyser (pronounced "geezer") or hot water heater that you turn on 15 minutes before you need hot water--just like for the shower.

Installing a chandelier. You can program it to change colors--and it plays music, but we removed the zip drive so it won't do that now. It was rather annoying.

We are so glad to be moved into our own space!
