Maju karte, 3.dala/ A Map of Home, part 3

22 Feb

Ta nu es turpinu meklet majas. Esmu pa so laiku bijusi dazas vietas, ka ari neveiksmigi meginajusi sazinaties ar vel vairak. Vispar jau dikti interesanti ir lasit sludinajumus: “Istaba par brivu brivai sievietei”, “mekleju dzivokla biedru, kas nepardos manu mantibu interneta”, “istaba isiem cilvekiem vai tadiem, kam nav iebildumu pret zemiem griestiem”. Ik pa laikam sanak izlasit tadus sludinajumus, kuri parak labi, lai butu patiesi. Krapnieki, protams, ari te ir ka biezs – megina izvilinat naudu, kad dzivoklis pat nav redzets.
Vislabakais piedavajums, kadu lidz sim biju redzejusi, atradas netalu no briniskiga parka Bruklina (Prospect Park). Rajons labs, tuvu metro, cela no darba lidz majam (ka angliski saka, door-to-door) paietu 55 min, milziga divstavu rindu privatmaja, kur pirmaja stava dzivo saimnieks, bet otraja bez brivas istabas, kas gaida iemitnieku, vel 3 meitenes :) Nebija jau slikti, tikai istaba tik liela, ka, ieliekot gultu, paliek pusotrs metrs lidz tai, bet, lai tiktupie loga, javelas pari gultai. Ja nemtu so istabu, varetu drosi manas dienas Nujorka devet par gultas stastiem, he he :)
Vakar savukart sanaca iemaldities meksikanu rajona. Nezinaju jau, ka tas tads ir. Tuvu pilsetai, tiesi uz robezas starp Bruklinu un Kvinsu. Ko lai dara, ka es tur nejutos omuligi? Mekleju talak!

So my adventure in looking for a home is still going on. I have gone to see a few places and have tried unsuccessfully to join the owners for more than that. It’s actually very fun to go through craigslist only to read the different posts people put there: “Free room for a single woman”, “looking for a roomie who won’t sell everything on e-bay”, “room for short people or someone who doesn’t mind a low ceiling”. Then there are posts that are too good to be true – many individuals are trying to get some money even before you have seen the room.
The best offer I’ve seen so far was in Brooklyn, not far from the Prospect Park. A nice neighborhood, close to the subway, a huge 2 storey private row house. The owner lives on the ground floor and upper floor is for 4 people. The room who is waiting for someone to occupy it was nice and light except that after putting a bed in it, everything that’s left is like 4 feet space… And, to get to the window, you would need to scroll across the bed! If I take it, I could surely name my blog “The bed stories in New York” :)
Yesterday I went to see a place that appeared to be in a Mexican neighborhood… It just didn’t feel right. So I keep looking!
