I am postdoctoral researcher at a Max Planck Institute in Germany. I am Colombian, and lived in the Netherlands before moving to Germany a couple of years ago.
Julian is awesome! He is a kind, considerate, funny, interesting person. While he was with us for three weeks coincidentaly friends of his were with us as well. His friends were in the process of relocating from Germany but were not able to find an apartment for a month later than they expected. They had tons of things with them and dreaded having to move to another airbnb for the following month. I was able to acommodate them by shuffling them from room to room for the duration which seemed better than having to leave altogether. When Julian came he kindly was the one to shuffle from room to room to save them from having to move their stuff. While the moves would have been not terrible they still would have been a pain. His flexibility saved the day! In the end he ended up staying in four of our five rooms, all of them except for the one he rented. He was gracious and very sweet about it. We really hope he comes back to Boston so we can spend a little more time with him.
