Our apartment in Corte..probably only something the fam is interested in...

I know you guys have been sitting by your computers waiting for us to post a video of our apartment...well here it is! We finally got a phone (and it has a camera on it) after almost 2 months, things take awhile when you are a foreigner. :)

We really like our little apartment and finally are settled in with a daily routine (somewhat)...our favorite part are the balconies and our least favorite part is living on the 3rd story with no elevator. (and a Big girl who likes to do everything by herself).

The Citadel you see, in the video, to the left of our apartment, was built in the 15th century as an look-out and fortress to protect Corte. It amazes me how old this town is. Here it is close up:

this is the view from the top of it:

here are some pictures in case you cannot view the video...I only have a wide-angle lens so it was hard to capture everything in the pictures.

These is right outside our door:

I can't think of a better place to spend Christmas. If the weather permits and the roads are safe (not icy), Corte is a great place to explore other parts of this magnificent island- as you probably know by now. Enjoy! http://www.corsicajourneys.com/day_trips/corte-corsicas-first-capital/
