House Hunters International: The Rejects

While on our week long visit to Suzhou (this past June) we had an afternoon of apartment hunting. J's company set us up with a real estate agent that found a few apartments for us to view. First I'll show a few pics of the places we didn't pick.

Thhis is kitchen of the second place we saw. It didn't have an oven or a dishwasher which is common for most Chinese apartments. 

This is the living room/dining room of the third place we saw. This one had in-floor heating throughout the apartment.

This is the guest bedroom at the sixth place we saw. This bed is the firmest bed I have ever sat on, it was like I sat on the hardwood floor!

Living room of the seventh place we saw.  At this point in the house hunting extravaganza the apartments all started looking the same. It didn't help that we hadn't eaten lunch and it was hot and humid!

Dining room of the eighth place we saw.

The guest bedroom of the ninth place we saw. This apartment was dark and you needed mosquito netting because of the first floor location and the little canal that runs right by the apartment. 

There was one other apartment that we saw on this trip, but I didn't take any pictures. It was the fourth place we saw, from the moment the door opened it was bad. It smelled horrible, like cigarette smoke and mildew. Gross! It was also dark and needed a serious deep clean. 

It was an exhausting afternoon! Baby O did great being moved from carseat to carrier and back many times. We were all hungry, hot and tired by the end of the day. Thankfully we were able to see a few apartments that we liked. I'll share our top three in the next post.
