  • Description

    Description

    I am an astronomer working at the University of Guanajuato. I run the Astronomy Department composed by 13 other researchers. At the the Astronomy Department we have two observatories where it is possible to attend and learn from it.

    The house has many plants, I like it green and I plan to improve the terraces by putting more plants around. Actually I would like to have an organic garden to get own healthy food.

    I like learning languages so I would like to welcome people from everywhere to learn about languages and cultures.

    The house has terrace and nice view in the hotel area of Guanajuato in San Javier. We are very close to the center of the city.

    The first part of the project is a small (4 room) bed & breakfast which is already working in Guanajuato capital. One of the most beautiful cities in México.

    Another project is to have a computing school about html/php/css/javascript/mysql, so any person that know about this languages is welcome.

    People independent and responsible are welcome, couples or friends with working experience and any language is OK.
    2 to 3 WEEKS stays at least are desirable. I speak fluently English and Spanish. Our place functions as a B&B, but clients come only during weekends in general, outside high season. During the week, the place is more quiet.

    I like languages and would be very nice having an hour learning your language.

    In exchange I offer a beautiful spot, quiet, free internet, no services charges with accommodation included.

    Regarding the B&B: help cleaning the rooms, changing sheets, doing the laundry.
    Tasks inside the house: cleaning toilets, bathrooms
    Outside: watering the plants, I have one dog. I would like to have her bath.

    Small repair and maintenance jobs always occur, as articles break down or need attention otherwise: painting, rebuilding or improving the fence, making order, reorganize. ...Or whatever else you think that needs to be done.

    Own initiative is needed, I don´t like to command people but also don´t like to chase people for things to be done. Be creative and a self starter, see tasks that need to be done.

    What you get in return:
    For the rest of the day you can just relax, write, use internet (good wifi available), walk, play with the dog, watch movies, or whatever you like. You can practice your Spanish with me and the guests, and we can give travel advice for the rest of your trip.

    You can get days off to visit nearby and nice cities without problems we have to arrange in advance.The center of Guanajuato is 15 minutes walking. It takes 1 hour to go the San Miguel de Allende.
