My First Room in the USA
I lived at home all during my college life. When I got to Johnson City, TN, it was the first time that I left my parents and rented a room by myself. The room belonged to a retired Baptist minister and his wife. The house was a big brick house with four bedrooms and one bath upstairs, all unused by them. They liked to rent out the space to four "boys", to supplement their income. However, since it was a bit distant from the main campus, only two rooms were rented out. I only had to share the bathroom with one undergraduate. The picture below shows the room and my landlady with her daughter.
