The Alamo Square Apartment
Today was our first full day in our new apartment near Alamo Square! It is a completely furnished studio (except sheets apparently) with about 400 square feet. Perfect for our first apartment in San Francisco. We will only live here for a month or two while we look for jobs, scope out the city and decide which neighborhood we really want to call home. Then we’ll find a bigger, probably 1-bedroom, place that we could see ourselves living in for a couple years. That’s when we’ll finally rent a moving van and properly move our furniture and miscellaneous items, officially relinquishing our claims to living in Portland!
Our morning started with a 2-bus transfer to the closest Trader Joe’s for groceries. We stocked up on most of the basics we knew and loved in Portland, but limited ourselves to three grocery bags. We rode back, unloaded our goods, ate lunch and went out to enjoy the beautiful day at Alamo Square. Nik brought the feather, and we kicked around for an hour or so while looking out over the city of San Francisco beyond the Painted Ladies………..are we in heaven?
