what an amazing home i got to live in for a week! it is like a museum. so many fascinating objects, art, etc and each has its own story. the house is very big, spacious and quiet. sharing a bathroom, conveniently located across the hall, was no problem at all, as everyone had a different schedule. my room had a small study adjacent which was very handy. there was a fan or window a/c i could use. the kitchen was well organized and i had enough room for my food in fridge and cupboard. i especially enjoyed eating on the deck and meditating in the study. parking was easy and near the metra and el. they had permits for street parking and beach use which were very helpful. they pretty much thought of everything. jerri and allan, thank you for accommodating me so well.
