I am BEYOND chomping at the bit for details and pictures of our new home in Dhaka. Today we got a tidbit of info, but are waiting on the official notice and details. After months of hearing from people "oh, you have a kid, so surely you'll get a house and not an apartment", I was starting to convince myself the same. And since the only 2 things we really asked for on the housing questionaire were "a yard" and "sunlight", I thought we had a chance at a house.
... we were assigned an apartment. Ug.
All in all though, what I've been able to find about it looks super nice. And the neighborhood is very nice and near a park with a lake (not a lot of park space in Dhaka). So though I REALLY WANTED a yard for gardening and family play, guess I can learn to garden in containers and we can go to the park to play.
Hope to get happy details next week :)
