Several of you asked for new photos of my apartment so I took some today. I took them with my little camera and they don't appear to be quite as clear as from the big one but they'll be fine for these purposes. The original photos of the apartment were taken square on so I could get the idea of what each "room" looked like. These are taken from angles so you can see how all of the rooms tie together.
The sun may not be out but it's still bright enough out there to cause some serious blinding from the window. When I sit here at my desk, my view is straight out to the avocado tree and off to the right just a bit is the papaya tree. That's where the hummingbirds hang out. I told a friend of mine that it's a good think I'm not trying to work as a Virtual Assistant down here because my eyes tend to wander out to watch the hummingbirds when I hear them talking to one another.
Ecuadorian kitchens don't tend to "clutter" up their kitchens with a lot of cabinets. I'm beginning to get used to it but it's still a little odd having so little cupboard space.
