Come stay with me in Boston's Roslindale neighborhood. It is a very safe and suburban part of the city, where most of the houses have driveways and backyards. Your room is fully furnished with an 8 x 10 wool rug, and a nice bureau, a wood-frame, full-size bed, cable TV, WI-FI, a desk to work at, and a new chair.

I am an importer of Mexican Folk Art, and run an online store out of the apartment. You will see some wonderful examples of handmade wood, tin and pottery figures on display here.
