Nirav did not communicate very well during his stay. 1)He was the only one with a key to his private entry door and twice he didn't shut the door properly and the lock didn't catch, nothing was stolen either time. 2) I immediately had a professional exterminator come as soon as he told me about finding bedbugs. Unfortunately, He didn't tell me until he checked out, two months later. This is not a detail that should have been kept secret from me. 3) He asked me once to turn down the music, and I did. 4) Nirav lived with me for 2 months and it that time he never spoke more than a sentence to me or left his room other than to use the bathroom. I was unaware of any of his difficulties.
I was home for Christmas when they arrived but returned towards the end of their stay. I am normally home and was only away briefly. The pilot light blew out on the heater and despite my best effort of emails, texts and illustrations, neither Eleanor or her friend were able to light a match to fix it. I can't say that it was a language barrier as we both speak English. Unfortunately, someone in the building made too much noise one night on the roof during Eleanor's stay, neighbors complained and a lock was put on the access door. It has since been removed, but yes, it was disappointing for all. I'm sorry Eleanor missed out. On departure she left me some wonderful Chocolates, that I am still enjoying.
