    Help welcome in Xochimilco in south of Mexico City
    Hello everybody!
    🇲🇽 I am a Mexican professional living in Xochimilco neighborhood. I own a big house that requires general maintenance.
    I love traveling around all the world and meeting new people 🏳️‍🌈.

    Spending time in Xochimilco is great experience, and one of the most important tourist destinations in Mexico city. It’s almost obligatory to take a trajinera ride and enjoy the region’s typical cuisine and snacks and of course listening to mexican music performed by mariachis, trios of ranchero music or marimba players.

    An obligatory visit is the Museo Dolores Olmedo Patiño, a typical mexican building surrounded by wonderful gardens. Its collection consists of paintings of Diego Rivera and Frida Kalho.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    While staying in my house the Workawayer will live and understand the Mexican way of living, will try Mexican food and enjoy the touristic places and activities in the neighborhood and in Mexico City in general. Depending of the time of the year will have the opportunity to see the local festivals and parties.
    The Workawayer will also have the opportunity to learn or improve its Spanish Lenguage and will feel comfortable as I am able to speak fluently other languages like English, Russian, and Portuguese.
    I will be able to learn from other cultures or ways of living and practice languages. I am also open to learn skills to maintain the house from visitors.
