The apartment building. It's shaped a bit like an 'S'. I live in the red section on the 5th floor, and there's no elevator :(. But I guess it's good for exercise.
My apartment as seen from the door. You can see how it's just one big room...there's the TV in the foreground, and my bed and computer in the background.
Some of the furniture the school provided. The couch is covered in 1's and 0's, so we call it the binary couch. The other foreign teachers hate it, but being the computer geek I am, I like it. They've asked me to read it, but there isn't any indication where to start and stop, so I haven't made any progress yet.
This is a typical Chinese wall decoration. Much better then a poster (but more expensive, too). I bought this for 60 RMB (about $7.50) after I bargained the merchant down from over 200 RMB.
My bed. It has a mattress, but it's the hardest mattress I've ever slept on. I'm glad I don't have a bad back, because I don't know how I would sleep on it if I did. But it seems to get the job done, and I've gotten used to it.
My computer desk: The Two Towers. On the bottom right is my panda-bear clothes hamper.
This is the side of my room. To the left is the kitchen. To the right is the bathroom. The appliance on the left is our washer. I use the bar above to hang my clothes to dry, which unfortunately takes a very long time (pants and towels can take a couple days!). The appliance on the right is a water dispenser. I can't drink the tap water, so this is where I get my drinking water.
The kitchen. It's got a fridge and microwave on the right. On the counter is a rice cooker (which I have yet to use) and this hot-plate like device that can be used to fry food, boil things, etc. Note quite like a stove, but it seems to get the job done.
