The day we got a kitchen!

As you've read over several blog posts, we've had construction going on. Namely, tiling of our kitchen and building of cabinets. Well the great news is that it is done. More on that in a moment.

This morning we had Naraa come over, laid out carpet in our bedroom, and moved our wardrobe and
dresser in. That was job no. 1.

Then we had him replace some electrical sockets. Apparently 220 isn't enough of a shock to worry about, so there is no turning the power off, just rip those suckers out of the wall and put the new one in. Job no. 2.

 Thirdly we went to BSB and bought a stove and vacuum cleaner, and they threw in a free kettle (finally, a give away item that someone wants).

We came home and our workers arrived to continue on the kitchen. We had lunch and then went out to language class. When we came home they were almost done. Our stove had arrived and Naraa was here fixing up the wiring for it, and after an hour or so, they finished the kitchen! It's great, as you can see from this picture.

Still no table, chairs, or couch, but we have made great leaps in apartment-setting-up today.
