We have moved into a rented apartment, that one in Zamudio. It feels weird calling it an “apartment”, because this word (“apartamento”) in Spanish denotes a very small flat, and ours is over 100 square metres. After living so many years in a tiny place, this feels huge. Sometimes I even need to get off my ass and walk to another room just to have a conversation with Isabel!
Now we need to fill the space, and Ikea is not too bad a place to start with. We are buying a few metres of bookshelf just to get ready to receive our beloved books after so many weeks crossing the ocean. I gather they come on a ship called the Rangitoto, expected to arrive in Tilbury, UK on the 13th. Let’s see.
