An old, shoebox apartment in a college town. You need only to turn your head to view the place in its entirety. The mattress, on the floor, is covered with just a flat sheet. Above it, a series of Scarface and Bob Marley posters taped to the wall. On the mattress, your host has scattered bottle caps and crushed beer cans in the shape of a heart. Inside the heart, boxes of graham crackers, bags of marshmallows, chocolate bars, and a case of cheap beer.
Airbnb hosts welcome their guests with drinks and snacks that require a little assembling. There are enough provisions to share and to inspire conversation with strangers and familiars alike while snacks are made and consumed.
