La Casa Rosada


Our new pad!

For the first month, we were in an AirBnB house, so we waited to find something more long term until we arrived and had a better lay of the land.  Well, after much online searching and talking to people in town as well as real estate agents, we found “La Casa Rosada” about a mile from Atenas centro and with lovely views of the surrounding hills. We moved in a week ago and are adjusting well to our new neighborhood, but I will admit there was some panic after the first day when we discovered that there is no water upstairs for most of the day, I blew out the very temperamental electric shower head (the only hot water in the house) img_1774

because of said lack of water and Alice woke up covered in red marks that we initially thought was a rash but actually turned out to be mosquito bites (no screens in windows). 😦  Thankfully we’ve made some adjustments and the water pressure issue is fixed as our landlord has put in a pump so we now have water throughout the day.

We have a family with a horse on one side of the house and Oscar loves to chase the rooster and chickens that wander our yard.  We also discovered a nice playground about a half a block away so we are starting to get to know some of the families in this little area.

      Yes, they call it the ‘green season’ (nicer sounding than rainy season – ha!) and we’re in the thick of it.
      And we do! She’s been very responsive.

    Gorgeous views, I could sit and read/drink wine/ drink tea out on the patio all day everyday ☺️
