I moved into a new apartment yesterday. Whee!
Rent comes out to about $625 USD a month, and I’m a block away from the Copacabana beach. I’m living with a Brazilian family (mom and daughter, per usual Brazilian household setup), as well as another American student, and a Brazilian lawyer. Strangely, my room is the biggest in the house.
Bonus: There’s an adorable cat named Leo. :)
I’m pretty happy with this place. The location is super convenient, I have all the things I need (kitchen use, refrigerator, wifi, privacy, safety, etc.), and of course, there’s a cat. :)
