Where can I start? Consuelo reminds me a lot of myself. She came to stay with her friend Monica, who doesn't speak a lot of English and was a little bit shy, so she did most of the communicating and translating. She did a lot of the organizing of their stay and really wanted to make me feel comfortable with them being there. She is very, very empathetic and kind.
Professionally, she is an architect and was thinking of ways that I can maximize my space and design my new bathroom, (something I do in other people's homes too!)
Each morning, I looked forward to getting together and talking about their plans for the day at breakfast; we also had a fun night out dancing at the Red Rooster in Harlem and we all enjoyed it.
Monica and Consuelo were also very kind and considerate to all of my other guests and included them in conversation etc at breakfast.
They were super clean and treated my place as their own. I hope to see them soon next time with their children ;-)
