All this thinking about finding a place to rent has me going crazy. Why? Well for one I hate the very idea of moving stuff. I always end up not having enough space or cartons for storage and then rue the fact that I can’t carry all my things. I’m also finding it difficult to find a 1 BHK place to rent. That was the criteria that I have asked people to help me with. Well ok, if 1BHKs are hard to find then I’ll take a 2BHK place for rent. Hmmm it looks like apartment buildings are quite rare in the area that I am looking to stay in and so I might have to stay as a paying guest or find a person/family who are willing to give a portion of their house or maybe even a floor for rent. Sigh – this is not what I was looking for.
Ok so I’ll settle for anything as long as I can be comfortable over there. There are no apartment buildings in Koratty, the little town on the highway where my new office is located. However being such a small little “pit stop” there aren’t many shops there. There are a few very cute & nice looking houses over there and I would kill to stay in them. The rent is cheaper in Koratty and I can even get a 3 bedroom house for just Rs.3000 a month! That cheap! But what the fuck would I do with a 3 bedroom house even at cheaper rent rates. Personally I hope to find an apartment that is close to stores – medical stores, a grocery story or two, maybe a little supermarket, close to the bus stop (so I don’t have to sweat it out in this heat while walking to get my bus) and most importantly with a bar or 3 nearby.
Below represents an example of what I think would be ideal. I would use the second bedroom as a storage cum little home office setup or whatever. Maybe use it as a den/reading room etc.
