Charming Spanish Style Home on Hill

Our house is situated on a hill in the lively Eagle Rock area of L.A. between Pasadena & Glendale, near various community colleges, Occidental College is 5 minutes away, & Calif. Institute of Technology is 15; USC is a half-hour drive, as are 2 Cal States. We offer 2 bedrooms w/ a queen & a double bed, a spacious living room, a very functional galley kitchen, a small comfy family/TV room with a view of our small valley & hills, & 2 outdoor decks with a BBQ grill. We have 3 nice cats & a sweet little dog; depending on length of exchange, we can bring our animals with us, or you can care for them with the help of our neighbors.

About Me
I am now retired after teaching English at the California community colleges for 20 years. Because I have no current college email address, I am registered on this site as "non-academic," though I taught all levels of English Composition, as well as Critical Thinking with an emphasis on both academic Nonfiction & Literature. My husband & I live with our 3 crazy cats & lovable dog in L.A., & yes, we're more than prepared to care for your animals in any exchange! We can travel at virtually any time: We lived in Provence, France, in our youth, so we hope to return there at some point, & we try to visit New York City a couple times a year. We also intend to visit as many countries--especially major cities--as possible before we completely wear out! Fact is, we're very "young" & hip old people living in a totally funky-cool neighborhood--the home of Occidental College (aka Barry Obama's 1st university out of high school; trivia tidbit).
