Well, I finally got my furniture delivered, so I was able to unpack my suitcases for the first time in a month. I got a TV and DVD player as well. My apartment doesn't have air conditioning, which is pretty much the standard in the city; it also does not have working heat-- which is most definitely not the standard in the city. So I bought a little electric oil heater for my room that so far seems to keep the room nice and cozy in the time between when I get home from work and when I go to bed.
Here is a panoramic view of my room. I definitely recommend that you click on it so that you can see it a little better:
