About this blog

When we aren't out and about traveling ourselves, we have been involved in home and day hosting of international visitors to Chicago through several organizations. Sorry but we are not doing indepedent travelers, so don't come a knockin' for free B and B. Our first guest was a young woman from Japan who won an English speaking contest sponsored by Chicago/ Osaka Sister Cities. We enjoyed home hosting Yuka so much we have continued and to date have helped visitors from Costa Rica, Australia, South Africa, the former Soviet Union and Brazil get a tast of Chicago beyond the cliches. As I have time I will be chronicaling their visits over the past 18 months. Lady Di (and co host Esteban).
