My wife and I are retired teachers, she in ESL and me in physics. We have traveled a lot and lived in several countries, e.g., China, Austria, Germany, Israel. We speak some German, pray some Hebrew, sing some Spanish and admire Chinese calligraphy. We are non-smokers, we have a vegetable garden nearby, we volunteer. We read a lot, watch movies often, travel frequently. My wife writes a monthly column on gardening and environmental issues. I am a docent at the nearby Arnold Arboretum and my wife and I look forward to helping you enjoy your stay in Boston.
