    Description

    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 live with my boyfriend and we have a dog. If you love dogs, you're welcome to help us train her!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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 and exchange recipes from around the world.

    We need help painting our house. We still need to paint a few rooms.
    I'm working on a mural in the living room. If you have art skills/experience in murals that would be great! If you know how to paint clouds that would be even better!!

    We're 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....). We're working on a lot of DIY pallet projects.
    Ideas are welcome!

    I would love to keep learning German. If you know German, I will probably ask for at least an hour of German lessons a day please!

    Accommodation

    We can offer you a room with a bed. We have blankets and pillows. Hot water. Wifi available during the day. You can borrow the extra bike.

    Unfortunately we can't offer meals, but we don't mind sharing what we have within reason. For this reason we're only asking for a maximum of 15 hours a week.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    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.
