Congratulations!!! Wonderful news! I added you to the list of June Interviews thread. No help on the hotel front yet since I, myself, am just starting to look. I'll be interested to see where you end up! I know if you read through embassey reviews, a lot of people mention where they stay in their review. might be helpful!
