We moved to Chengdu a few weeks ago. We started in a hotel but found a place to rent quicker than expected. Again I was reminded of the pragmatism of life in China. If one wouldn’t be too picky, I bet you can arrange a new place to rent within a day. That’s including finding an real estate agent and having China telecom come by to connect the internet. Talking about internet, I’m used to slow ADSL lines from China Telecom but they modernised and installed a 20mbit fiber line in our house. Turns out it comes with a sweet Netflix like interface that features most recent blockbuster movies with a program called “4K”. This legal movie watching sets me back just 100 RMB per month. We found some routine again but are mostly waiting for our stuff to arrive from The Netherlands. Our moving company says that should be within two weeks from now. Until then we practice our ‘camping life’ practices. With just a few clothes and just two towels.
On the upside; Our new place features a community pool which is nice and cooling in this hot climate. Mia loves to swim there and we all go time to time. I have to say my little to girl adapted quickly to or lives here.
