futuristic apartments

So these apartments are way out of downtown so if you don't like that idea, don't stay. However they are fantastic. It's like walking into Ikea in 4012. And there is a bus line that runs right to the door. Supermarket is near by too. We had a lot of fun staying there. Great to go see ruins from 1400 and then zoom about 5 centuries into the future...
