It is true that my other listing was booked at the time of Carol's stay, therefore she would share the apartment with another guest. I would like to stress that I choose my guests very carefully, and in case of said "Indian man" I had shared my tiny apartment with him for the preceding 10 days and found him not only very trustworthy but extremely respectful, cultured and worldly. I was confident it should be absolutely safe and comfortable for Carol to share the space with him, as it was for me. I know for fact that they met and had an extended conversation, after which Carol confirmed via text message her impression of him as being trustworthy. Which leads me to believe her distrust was based solely on my guest's gender and race.
At this point, I would like to state clearly, that any form of racial, genre, religious, or any other type of discrimination is not, and will never be welcome in my home. If you have any concerns of this kind, please consider an alternative accommodation.
