Hi everyone! Tracy and Josue here. :) We've been living in Chicago for quite some time now. Beautiful city to travel to! A little bit about us. I (Tracy) used to be a photographer but decided to change careers and become a Mortician. Josue is a Socialite, Traveller, Humanitarian, Activist, Producer and Investor. We love everything we do and hosting for Airbnb is definitely one of them. When our guests are happy we are happy. We will do everything we can to make your stay as comfortable and amazing as possible. Josue is great with directions, places to check out, things to do, events and nightlife. He knows how to make an awesome drink as well! I love to cook and try my hand with new recipes. We both like to go out and experience nightlife, love being foodies and trying out new restaurants when the time permits. Love to travel as well, but Chicago is our Home for now! We are happy to share the experience!
