I'm an anthropologist and urban flaneur(e?) based in Chicago, USA.
I did not get to meet Tien-Ann. Some unexpected incident pushed her arrival back one day and I had to make special arrangements for her friend, who was arriving later, to get the keys to the apartment. It ended up making things a bit more complicated on my end but everything went well in the end. The apartment was left clean, and Tien-Ann was lovely to communicate with. She is welcome back.
