    We are looking for one traveller only. The work to be done could be gardening, painting, cleaning, washing and or polishing cars. It is hot here in the tropics so there will be plenty of time to stop for cold drinks during your work time. At times we may go to the next street to help out at my elderly mothers home. As a rule we start with a couple of days stay first, to insure we all get on well together. The travellers that come and help us normally stay 5 to 14 days. We have 2 very friendly dogs.
