Notice: I am looking for accommodation for myself between 26 June and 15 July this year in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I am a 31 year old linguistics PhD student at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I am planning to attend the first half of the LSA Lingustics Institute at MIT/Harvard. I am interested in any type of accommodation, such as share-housing, house-sitting or renting on my own. I am happy to look after pets or gardens.
