So, just found out at the beginning of the week that I've been awarded a Fulbright scholar's award (huzzah!). If everything is approved, me and my partner will be moving to Pittsburgh next July for 10 months (from the UK).
It looks like we'll have a monthly income of around $3000 - $3500, and I'm wondering if this is enough to live on for two adults in central Pittsburgh (or close to University of Pittsburgh campus, Cathedral of Learning part) who are used to good living? We might have to get a car, but this will depend on if we can get a trasher for 10 months and dump it on Craig's List or something.
Anything else I need to know? Places to eat? Neighbourhoods to stay? Best shopping places? Places to avoid? Give me the skinny on making our 10 months in Pittsburgh the best time that it possibly can be!
