Wanna live in Algeciras?

There is no point in having a blog if you can’t use it for shameless self promotion.

We want to sell our apartment in Algeciras.  Yes, I always slag the ‘hood, but really, you want to live there.  In fact, you want to live in my old house.   You love heavily perfumed old ladies hanging around the lobby, rubbing their neon lipstick on your kids’ faces.  Really, you do.

Nice bright living room.  Great, huh.  You can picture yourself there.

A big kitchen.  A square kitchen!  This may not seem important to you North Americans, but here apartment kitchens are usually shaped like hallways.

Speaking of which, we have one of those too.  Isn’t that a great hallway?  It used to be hot pink, but I toned it back to generic, just for you.

It has lovely views  of Algeciras Bay.  Ships, industry, fat people in bathing suits, you can see it all from the ample balcony.

This apartment has other features too.  But have you ever tried to take photos of your bathroom?  No matter how far you slink into the tub you just can’t capture the atmosphere.

Here’s the blurb:

Flat for sale in San José Artensano, Algeciras. 108 m2, very bright, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large balcony with views of the bay, and a spacious kitchen. 120,000   110,000 euros, negotiable.

Notice I wrote “flat”.  That’s an apartment for those of you who only speak Canadian.  I am becoming quite competent in English, eh.

    That cannot be your “flat”. Where’s the winnie the pooh car. The blocks. The trains. The fingerprints. The diapers flapping. The yogurt splattered floor. Hee Hee Hee.

    love ya

  2. Kitchens shaped like hallways.

    Ah, yes. THOSE kitchens. Never thought I’d say it but I miss the square. It’s so annoying to be bumping elbows and asses every time you want a glass or a spoon.

    Looks good. Hope it sells quickly!
