In the meantime, here are some pics of our new place in London. It is very near the Acton Town tube station which is right between Acton and Chiswick high roads. Though our room is nice and big, we'll be sharing the house -- it's big: 3 stories, 6 bedrooms -- with people from all over the world.
Here's our street, "The Ridgeway"
All in all, we're both really happy with it. A 20-minute tube ride into town won't be so bad and the other people in the house -- thanks to Skype -- seem very nice.
Now all we need to do is finish the visa process...
