First off, we do rarely accept one nite only stays because it is ALOT of work, especially for a large group but Cassandra and her group of 8th and 9th graders were super easy going and made it a true pleasure. Their group was only going to be in Chicago for the one day on their way to the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals in Ames, Iowa. Although, Chicago was slightly out of their way, they explained there was a bio engineering exhibit at the Field Museum that the kids would love! We were excited to meet such an amazing team of teens that earned a spot at the Worlds by building a car from scratch that can split in half and come back together, travel sideways, and run off of two team-designed propulsion systems. How cool is that!?! Cassandra explained that they had used Airbnb to find once previously for a trip and were hoping to have good luck with it again this year. After adding that they we came across our listing and thought it sounded perfect, how could we say no:)
They were in and out in a blink so we certainly hope to have the opportunity to host their group and/or friends and family in the future here in Chicago or even some other city in which our mutual journey's take us so we can get to know them better!
