So far Lisbon is wonderful! We don't have internet access at our apartment yet, so we won't be able to post pictures until it is set up.

We are so happy with our apartment. To be honest, it is much nicer in so many ways than what we were prepared for. Because it was just renovated, it has brand-new appliances, plenty of space, and wooden floors. We have always heard that we would have hardly any closet space, but it turns out there is more than we need!

We are actually the only people living in our whole building (10 units) as of right now, since they just finished the renovations. That's why the cable isn't connected to the building yet, so we are waiting on that.

Our place is in a nice location, and we are right down the street from one of the biggest and nicest grocery stores in the city, which is located within a mini mall that has everything else, including a movie theater. It's very convenient as well that the Embassy is only a short walk away.

It is still a little rainy here, but at least it's not too cold. We are looking forward to the rain lessening and the weather warming up soon. There is so much to explore in this beautiful city!
