Dear Marina,

I'm glad your move will be a little less fraught than expected, but sorry 
you're losing your garden and your accustomed shops&services. They don't 
have community allotment plots where you are?

Best of luck with the move.

It’s nice enough I suppose, but no place for plants needing sun (looking into grow-lights), removing my emotional safety valve, and my creative/spiritual practice outlet.
