So I needed an address of a couple who I loved on my mission. They happened to live right behind our apartment. I could see their apartment from my bedroom window and balcony. They could see our balcony from their bathroom window and a bit from their balcony. So every day, as I was in my bedroom or on my balcony, I'd look over at their apartment to see if I could catch a glimpse of them. And every day, the mom would gaze over at my bedroom window and balcony to see if she could catch a glimpse of me. One day, I saw an arm, and I happily reported that to her that evening. One day, she saw my luggage out on the balcony (I was doing a thorough cleaning of our apartment) and she expressed concern that night that I might be packing my bags. Finally, we actually one day saw each other. We smiled at each other and waved like fools, and then ultimately realized that, seeing each other across what was still a large distance, didn't leave you with anything else to do but smile and wave. Still, it was the highlight of my week.
So as I was saying, I can never remember if their street number is 114 or 112. So I decided to look up their address on google maps to see if I could figure it out visually, and what do you know, I was able to use street view to see not only their street number (112) but also my balcony and bedroom window. There is a bright white figure in the bedroom window. I'm sure it's me.
So then I decided to start poking around my old street using street view---take a stroll down memory lane, as it were. Google maps didn't accurately find my address, so I had to just keep "strolling" down the street until I recognized it. I saw several bus stops I was familiar with. I saw the Trattoria where I'd go for pizza a taglio. I saw my old dry cleaner's. I found what I was pretty sure was the lane down which my old apartment was (I couldn't actually use street view to go to my apartment since it was at the very end of a lane). And just to be sure, I thought to myself, "Now, if I'm correct, there should be a bus stop directly across the street from this apartment..."
I "looked" across the street in Google maps, and this is what I found.
Do you think I found the right spot?
