We've arrived safely in Cape Town, and have been busy this past week seeing friends, revisiting old hangouts, checking out what's changed-- and searching for an apartment, a much more stressful process than I expected. The hardest part of our search is that we found the perfect place on our first day. It had everything we want-- character, views, high ceilings, and a great location-- and one thing we didn't want-- a lot of other applicants. Hopefully we'll find somewhere soon-- nine months is long enough for me to be itinerant. I'll update as soon as there's a lease with my signature on it.
