When we discussed this move to India over the past few years, I always indicated that I had a few requirements. Everyone has “must haves” to remain sane. Whether it is fresh air, near transportation, ability to get food you prefer, we all have them.
My main concerns were
- Fully shutting windows
- Washer not in the kitchen
- 3 bedrooms
We have most of those. After being here, I added a dryer.
Yes, I realize a dryer is not green or eco friendly, but with 80% humidity now, and soon to be 100% in a few days (for a few months straight) I couldn’t foresee myself not being upset when I am wearing damp muggy stinky clothes. Most of our clothes aren’t thin, single layer cotton, and even that can take a few days to dry.
So, I was excited that, even though we lack any real furniture, we have clean and dry clothes.
While the washer and dryer is in the kitchen, at least I have a dryer and no longer am hanging my clothes in the extremely stinky “dry” areas.
I also wanted to be near their school, and we sorta are. Like 15 minutes or less, with out rain. But rains are on their way, so it might be a bit longer. We shall see.
