Institution/Organization: UC Berkeley

Notice: I am a doctoral student at the University of California, Berkeley, and will be doing my dissertation research at the University of Leipzig Library as a Fulbright fellow.

My wife and I are looking for a furnished apartment in Leipzig. We are tidy people and non-smokers. We are quiet and relaxed, and we don't party. We have no children and no pets.

We will arrive in Leipzig at the beginning of August and stay until July 2008.

If you know of anyone in Leipzig with an apartment for rent, please let me knoe.
