I am from Vancouver BC, currently living in Providence RI. Growing up in the nature rich Pacific Northwest, I am interested in outdoor adventures, sailing, hiking, etc. I also have a PhD in Physics from Brown University.
Petya: I never met you once in my 6 weeks in NYC, but if you actually speak to Abie (my actual host), you'd know that she thought I was a great flatmate. I'll add that I just asked Abie if I ever upset her, and she unequivocally said no. I certainly never had any problem with the "paint on the walls and the style, about the furniture and so on." Humbly, I would advise you to be more truthful in the future (to others and to yourself). In any case, no hard feelings at this point. Good luck with your business, Petya.
