|5 years in review, 2005

Last week marked the fifth anniversary that I was “RIF”ed from Sun Microsystems and I retired. I’m posting a brief history of the past five years, one post for each year. This is the second year.
It wasn't until the middle of January that the sale of house was final and the funds appeared in my bank account. Fortunately it only took a week to complete the buying of my place in El Masnou. I spent several months buying appliances, painting… in short, making it home.
In June I spent a month in California putting together my application for a residency permit in Spain. Several months later I returned to California with still no word on my residency application. When I got back to Barcelona towards the end of November, I ran into my future partner late one night on Passeig de Gràcia.
This is the home that I bought in El Masnou.
Not the whole building, just the top floor, which is barely visible.
