Today we passed our final inspection. Architect Hildebrand and his wife checked every room of the Kartause, emptyed and cleaned over the past six weeks by yours truly et al., and were quite impressed. It remains for us only to clear out a few last items into the big moving containers tomorrow, and then we say good-bye to the beautiful historic Kartause.
Actually, though, we'll see plenty of it until the very end of September, because we still have our flat above the Spar. We'll spend the next week here, and then when Lisa and the kids depart for Michigan I'll stay here here in Gaming in seclusion and try to learn some German, maybe study for the GRE, and write a Masters thesis. Two weeks should be about enough, right? On the 15th of July apartments supposedly become available for us in Trumau and I'll try to move some things in to prepare for the return of the family and the arrival of Peter and Sara on the 17th.
