In other news, this is what I'm dealing with at Duo right now.
The neighbor's balcony on top of our sitting room has been leaking since we've had the place. The neighbor is a little over zealous in watering his plants and refused to stop. Complaint after complaint went ignored until finally the ceiling caved in. Thank god it happened at 4am when no one was around, but now we have this gaping hole and all sorts of water damage to our beautifully painted walls and trims. To top it all off, we had torrential rain overnight so we've got buckets everywhere catching water. It's a little ridiculous that it takes a ceiling collapsing to get any attention, but they're repairing the terrace as we speak and hope to be done with all repairs by Friday.
Meanwhile, our neighbor wants to move all of his plants down to our terrace and wants us to water them. The building administrator actually brought up the idea of him signing a contract absolving me of any blame/damages in case I kill the plants. I'm not touching any of that with a ten foot garden hose.
In good neighbor news, we invited all of the neighbors to the hostel last night for a little open house and a few glasses of cava. We invited them before we knew the ceiling would collapse, hoping we could use the whole space and the terrace. Regardless, it was a great event. Everyone was excited to meet each other and see the hostel. They were all very friendly and warm, unlike some other neighbors we've had... Special thanks to Candi the door lady for playing hostess and introducing everyone.
