I live in Washington, DC, and I'm from New York originally. My friend Jeff (who now lives in Egypt but is also from the United States) and I decided, at the last minute, to meet up for the holidays and explore Barcelona. We met each other when we did a fellowship together a few years ago. We're both lawyers (he's working for the American Bar Association in Cairo for a year and I work for the government and NGO's), I'm 35 and he's 40, and we love to travel. Your place seems to be just what we're looking for!
