We share a porch with two other apartments. Scout decided she really, really wanted to sniff the porch, so we headed outside. Both neighbors had their curtains open, so I took a little look-see. They both have full-sized refrigerators!! I'm positively scandalized! You might remember that our fridge is practically dorm-sized (below). It's funny because in the U.S. builders make every single apartment exactly the same, while in Germany there are different variations from apartment to apartment. For example, there were two apartments available in this building. The one we got has a full bathtub, while the other had a stall shower. And what's even weirder is that the stall shower (Kevin called it the Phone Booth) was located upstairs in the bedroom, just sitting in the corner of the room. Random.
