Hello! I am Yanalte. I love traveling and culture exchange. After many adventures around the world and living in a few different countries, I am now staying in one place for awhile and creating my home sweet home. I live in the town Jerez de Garcia Salinas which is close to Zacatecas City. It's a Pueblo Magico and absolutely gorgeous! I look forward to showing you around!
I would love to keep learning German.
I have a puppy. If you love dogs, you're welcome to help me train him!
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Hooray for culture exchange! I grew up in California but my family is from a small village nearby. I have 2 extra bikes and we can bike there so you can see the "rancho" life =)
We can cook together (I don't have an oven) and exchange recipes from around the world.
I need help painting my house. I still need to paint the bedroom, bathroom and part of the kitchen.
I'm working on a mural in the living room. If you have art skills/experience in murals that would be great!
I'm also making furniture from recycled materials. Pallets, crates, cardboard, plastic bottles, etc.
Currently working on a coffee table. If you're a carpenter, I could really use some help with making some cabinets and putting up some shelves. I need help sanding the crates (easy! Just time-consuming....)
Ideas are welcome!
I would love to keep learning German. If you know German, I will probably ask for at least 2 hours of German lessons please!
I have a puppy. If you love dogs, you're welcome to help me train him and take him for walks.
If you love kids and have lots of patience and know Spanish, you can spend your time teaching my cousin how to read and write and do basic math. He's currently in 1st grade and is really behind. He loves to talk but doesn't see the point in learning to read.
I also need help pulling out weeds in the front yard and picking up trash around the neighborhood.
You can babysit my cousins in exchange for dinner.
English, Spanish, German
I can offer you a small room with a sofa that turns into a bed or air mattress. I have blankets and pillows. Hot water. Wifi available during the day. You can borrow my extra bike.
Unfortunately I can't offer meals (I'm not currently working and just living off what's left of my savings) but I don't mind sharing what I have within reason. For this reason I'm only asking for a maximum of 15 hours a week.
Jerez is a Pueblo Magico and absolutely beautiful! There's the main square and the Teatro Hinojosa and lots of places to eat delicious food. Music is everywhere and the sun is shining 92% of the time =)
Sierra de Cardos is nearby if you're into hiking.
Zacatecas city is only 1 hour bus ride away ($58-$63 pesos)
The city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre and there are many great museums all over the city.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 3 hours a day, 5 days a week
