I live in NYC with my fantastic husband, Joe, and I am a PhD student in French at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York.
Jody and her husband were great guests: very communicative and very considerate in how they treated me and my home. This was especially appreciated as I could not be there during their stay. Unfortunately, I never got to meet them. There were many emails back and forth, though---before and during their trip. When they were going to be later than expected arriving, Jody let me know; when they had settled in, she wrote to tell me everything was going well; the night before they left, she wrote to ask me what I would like them to do with the linens and beer empties. Very, very thoughtful. And I came home to my apartment to find a nice hand-written note and everything as I had left it. I am left with an excellent impression. RECOMMENDED!
