    English:
    Hello! I am Abraham, I live in the countryside, in an area on the outskirts of Ambato called Puerto Arturo.
    My house is a quiet place and is relatively close to Baños (1h30 of travel) and Latacunga (1 hour of travel).
    I need help with cleaning the house, maintaining the garden and preparing food for two (lunches)
    I would also love to take piano lessons (I have a 36-key keyboard), guitar and English.
    I offer you food (breakfast and lunch that you should prepare yourself), a private room with a bathroom, you can also use the kitchen, the living room, the laundry room (I don't have a washing machine) and the wifi in the house.
    The deal would be 4 hours of work a day for 5 days a week. I buy the food and you prepare it.
    In addition, I can pay you for the roundtrip bus tickets to Baños, Latacunga, Riobamba or nearby towns that you want to visit on your days off

    Necesito ayuda para limpiar la casa, mantener el jardín y preparar comida para dos (almuerzos)

    Te ofrezco comida (desayuno y almuerzo que debes preparar tú mismo), una habitación privada con baño, también puedes usar la cocina, la sala, el lavadero (no tengo lavadora) y el wifi en la casa.
    El trato sería de 4 horas de trabajo al día durante 5 días a la semana. Yo compro la comida y tú la preparas.

    I really like teaching meditation and self-observation methods.
    The house has a quiet environment, away from the noise of the city and that helps one to take a break on their trip and relax and have time to assimilate things from their experiences.
    I can pay the price of your round trip bus trip to nearby cities such as Baños, Latacunga, Riobamba, Patate or picturesque towns near Ambato that you want to know your days off, which will enrich your experiences in this Andean area of Ecuador.

    Español
    Me gusta mucho enseñar métodos de meditación y autoobservación.
    La casa tiene un ambiente tranquilo, alejado del ruido de la ciudad y que ayuda a tomar un descanso en su viaje y relajarse y tener tiempo para asimilar las cosas de sus vivencias.
    Puedo pagar el precio de tu viaje en bus ida y vuelta a ciudades cercanas como Baños, Latacunga, Riobamba, Patate o pueblos pintorescos cercanos a Ambato que quieras conocer tus días libres, los cuales enriquecerán tus experiencias en esta zona andina del Ecuador.

    Mainly I need help with cleaning the house, preparing lunch every day (under certain indications since for medical reasons I cannot eat garlic) and some company for my mother.
    Maybe you should do grocery shopping.
    Another activity would be to take care of the garden, eliminate weeds, etc.
    Also, if you know how to play piano or guitar, I would love to receive lessons on this and also for you to help me practice and improve my English

    Principalmente necesito ayuda para limpiar la casa, preparar el almuerzo todos los días (bajo ciertas indicaciones ya que por razones médicas no puedo comer ajo) y algo de compañía para mi mamá.
    Quizás debas ir de compras al supermercado.
    Otra actividad sería cuidar el huerto, eliminar malas hierbas, etc.
    Además, si sabes tocar el piano o la guitarra, me encantaría recibir lecciones sobre esto y también que me ayudes a practicar y mejorar mi inglés.

    Also I am part of couchsurfing and I have lived very good times with travelers, cooking together, playing cards, chatting about the interesting things in life. My life is calm and I like to feel part of nature so I volunteer where I teach self-knowledge methods to rescue the consciousness of nature within oneself.
    I would like the volunteers to speak a little Spanish since my English is still very basic
    Something very important: I do not accept drug use at home

Mi vida es tranquila y me gusta sentirme parte de la naturaleza por eso hago voluntariados donde enseño métodos de autoconocimiento para rescatar la conciencia de la naturaleza dentro de uno mismo.
    Me gustaría que los voluntarios hablen un poco de español ya que mi inglés aún es demadiado básico.
    Algo muy Importante: En mi casa no acepto el consumo de drogas
