Hello, we are two, me Júnior and my mother Rita. Oh, and my dog, Alaska. I participated in Workaway in 2014. It was an amazing experience, so my mom and I decided to join the program and host people to help us with the housework and my nephews. Usually work is pretty smooth. We have a project to clean our yard and make a green area for leisure. I once went with an American friend to give a lecture at a school here in town. It was such an impact that I want to continue this project. Teach about new cultures and show opportunities in the outside world for young people from small towns in the region. You could also help me with that. Our house is always full during the day, my nephews love to be with us, we have three, Maria Clara, Luísa and João Antônio. We love being with them almost every day. They have a lot of energy and are always playing, just like any other child. We live in a small town in the south of Minas Gerais. The agricultural sector is predominant in the economy. My father and my two brothers are farmers, so if that is your preference, we can also spend time on the farm and in the countryside with them. Very close to our town house. It is a very quiet city, like any other in the countryside, where everyone knows each other. We have a lot of nature around the city, hiking trails, waterfalls, mountains and rocks to climb. We preserve the culture of the interior, so we are always cooking Minas Gerais food, such as cheese bread, feijoda, and others. I am a professional photographer and I have a photography company so I have the flexibility to enjoy all the time with my guests. I'm passionate about traveling, I know 17 countries and I love making new friends and seeing new places. I can share several stories with you. I love outdoor activities, I'm always busy with some of them and it will be amazing to have you as the next company. If you speak English, it will be a good opportunity for me to practice. That's it, I expect you to spend time with us.
