Last year Andreas lived in a pleasant apartment close to work. It had two bedrooms, a living/dining area, a small kitchen, and one bathroom. Although I had never seen it, I felt that it would be too small for the both of us, especially if we wanted to host visiting friends and family. So Andreas sent me pictures of the apartments of some of his departing colleagues and together we decided on a lovely three-bedroom place with a large balcony and a great kitchen.
It’s on the fifth floor with no elevator, but at least once I am all the way up here I am content to stay.
