the impact of COVID

Was contacted by a Professor @UWSeattle on behalf of Professor colleague from Bangladesh visiting Seattle on Fulbright Grant. COVID Pandemic caused changes in visiting Prof’s & his family’s initial housing, so they stayed in my home a month when I was out of town until other rental arrangement secured. Only met my guests via FaceTime, but they provided excellent references, including UW Faculty rental hosts of previous 3 months. My close neighbor friends helped this visiting Bangladesh family with IT & moving concerns during my absence. We all continue to connect (safely) during the duration of this visiting family’s stay in Seattle. Am looking forward to their tasty Indian cooking, which my neighbor friends got to try in their few meal exchanges. This experience has been unique, given the impact of COVID, the issues that arose for my guests during my absence that were addressed/resolved by my dear neighbor friends, and the continued contact with the Professor & family during the remainder of their stay in Seattle.
