Tips and Tricks:
1. When working with a Realtor, tell her you want to look at apartments that rent for at least $500 less than you actually want to spend. Then, maybe, you'll find something that's actually in your price range.
2. If you want a milkshake, tell them you want a frappe. Because that's what they call milkshakes here. And your derision of that colloquialism won't turn chocolate milk into a milkshake, no matter how much you shake your head.
3. The weather is mercurial in a way you might not think possible. Be aware of that. Super hot and humid, SUPER, and then brisk and windy. Then rain. And thunder. Be aware.
If you go on vacation, and then move right afterward, be aware that you will only have what you have in your suitcase. This means you will have approximately 4 clothing combinations. And Edie will have one sweater. And one pair of pants. Good luck with that rain.
