First, we're novice users of airbnb. We are retired university administrators who lived in Chicago for 25 years. We recently moved to Phoenix to be closer to our children and their families, and to enjoy the Southwest. We like hiking, travel, music, films and exploring (great cities and surprising out of the way places). We're coming to Washington to visit a cousin who is a researcher at the National Zoo and will do the Smithsonian etc. as well.
