If I really had to choose one type of building to live in, I would choose one that has not been recently condemned. You’d think that this point would be obvious, but that which is obvious to some is not obvious to all, I discover.
The phone shudders itself awake with the distinctive shriek of an inbound email. I am expecting an email from the person who showed me around another place in Prague. This is one which does have a lift and which has all the appliances in the right rooms. It’s a small detail but it makes me happy.
After having seen the place, I spent some time scouring the neighbourhood and liked what I saw. I also googled the address and the area too to see if there’s anything of interest. I did discover a news item from a few months’ back that reported on how the building was, apparently, condemned and declared as unsafe by the city’s civil engineers.
I forwarded this article to the owner with a polite question about it. This morning’s email is the answer.
I sip at my coffee and click on the email in my in-box. In it, I read that it was only the right-hand part of the building that was condemned so I’ll be fine in the left-hand part of it and I should not worry.
I will not, in fact, worry as I don’t expect to live there.
