I live in southern Idaho, I grew up in South America and have traveled and lived extensively around the world. My tastes tend to be in the quiet simplicity crossed with art and beauty. I'm not pretentious but I appreciate an intellectual conversation. if I had unlimited time and funds I would live anywhere with a view of the Indian Ocean and spend the rest of the time studying ceramics and goldsmith design in Portugal.
I have backpacked around Israel, worked in Kenya, toured coffee plantations and temples in India, seen a good part of Europe and Canada.
As a host, I make an assumption that you are a responsible adult. You already know that letting your cute pet up on furniture that isn't yours is not nice. You know that putting sandy shoes on the bed is uncool. If you need something, you can open a drawer or two to see if it is there and then put it back after you are finished.
