That would be nice, but the airfare is alot for round trip from here. We might be able to come out a month or so before my wife starts work. Serviced apartments sound great, but sounds like most will not take dogs. Maybe we will be able to find a short term furnished apartment or something while we look. I agree that one week is not nearly enough time, especially with all the places there are to see. One month sounds more reasonable if we can work it out.
