    ------------------------------------ ABOUT THE AREA -------------------------------------
    I live in a small municipality, which is an excellent base from which one can explore
    Brussels (39km), Antwerp (25km), Brugge (90km), Leuven (64km), Gent (42km)
    There is public transport nearby, and I am willing to give you a lift or pick you up
    at the train/bus station in Temse.
    I don't live on the country side, but there are some nice areas of nature in the
    neighbourhood, for walking or cycling.
    AMMA's center is very close.

    ---------- THE VOLUNTEER SHOULD ----------
    - be a non smoker
    - like dogs, as I sometimes do host dogs as well
    - have read my profile carefully, AND SEND ME A PERSONAL EMAIL!!
    - have a decent profile him/herself with at least two positieve reviews
    - communicate a fair bit before we commit to your coming, as a good match in
    expectations and what we each have to offer and what we're each looking for,
    is really very important to me.
    - have a good work ethic, and not be too picky on the jobs ('Can't you give me something inside, it's too chilly to work outside' is not really the attitude that I am longing for. I want some help, not to have to argue to get something done)
    - realize he/she is a guest in my house, therefor should accept the house rules without constantly having comments or questioning on the way I live
    - go out on the non working days
