8 (including myself) of my 16 classmates are living in the Roma neighborhood. It is very artsy and quaint, with lots of restaurants and pop up street vendors. There is a big park near by with many people on the sidewalk, and the streets are not too full of cars.
We live in a big house that is connected to a block full of 2-3 story buildings. There is retail at the bottom floor, and you go up a stair to a big main room, and to the right is our room!

|Naomi and I live here! The "blue room" looks onto Jalapa Street|

|Open air atrium with translucent roof - right off the kitchen |
