let me tell you a bit how I end up in shanghai
I was living in london for about 2 years and although I had an amazing boyfriend, good friends, a job that I enjoyed and an entertained social life I wasn't completely happy with my life. the weather was killing me...softly but surely.
but, c'mom, for someone that have lived in madrid for 4 years with summer days from may until october and blue sky even during winter, moving to london was bound to be a disaster :p
so, I was trying to convince my guy to move abroad, I was tempting him with beautiful barcelona or even the south of france. he had other ideas though
when he told me that he would like to live in tokyo I was in shock. it was so far away, so different and I not even knew the language
but then, after I overcome the initial shock I started thinking.....hum, its so far away, so different, and I don't know the language.....butterflies started moving around in my tummy
we were making our plans, visiting tokyo (he wanted me to see if I liked it before he agreed with his new employer) and all, when he tells me that we will have to go first to shanghai for 6 months for his training.
I couldn't be more exited, another country to know from the inside. hooray!!
a few weeks ago, my dear S, now husband, (still trying to adjust to this new title :p) told me that the 6 months were shorten to 4, which means that in about two weeks from now we will be in tokyo.
so, before I leave this extraordinary and very complex city, here are some photos of where we live :))
we have a starbucks next to us, a swimming pool that makes my day, and a big court food and shopping underground where our tube station is located as well. not bad for my first experience in asia.
our building, we are on the top floor - 22nd
a small square
some green spaces around
