I am a professor of Russian language and literature at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. I can't live without my wife, a Brit; my oldest son who is founder and principal of a charter school in Brooklyn, NY; my daughter who is working in London, enjoying her dual citizenship; my younger son, a student at McGill; and my friends. I'm interested in literature, film, history, politics. I love travel, which I do mostly with family members. Recent favorite travel destinations have been Paris, Amsterdam, and London. Bicycling and gardening are my favorite hobbies.
I am a newcomer to Airbnb; I am looking forward to trying it since I much prefer B&Bs to hotels or motels. My main interest/enjoyment in travel is in meeting and talking to people in the places I visit.
