    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Dede and i live in a city that has two major public universities and four small private colleges. Guests can walk from our house to restaurants, bookstores, etc. in about 15 minutes. If you enjoy baseball, the stadium for our local minor league baseball team (the Greensboro "Grasshoppers") is within a 15- maybe 18-minute walk. There is a bus stop right in front of our house. so you can get around Greensboro without a car.

    We are a retired couple living in Greensboro, North Carolina. We moved to Greensboro from the metropolitan Atlanta area in 2015 in order to enjoy a slower pace.

    as far as types of work that we need... help around the house, a bit of household cleaning, basic work around the yard... mowing the grass in spring and summer, raking leaves and such in the fall.

    if you are a native French speaker, we are always looking for opportunities to improve our language skills. Hosting German speakers is also fun for us.

    AND... if you are especially gifted in the field of exterior house painting, we will definitely need some trim around our house painted. (Wayne is not crazy about balancing on ladders).

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    you would have your own room, your own bathroom. The guestroom is great for single travelers or couples traveling together. We've got a nice kitchen, with a refrigerator in which we'll carve out some space for you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a Revolutionary War battle site in Greensboro that is maintained by the U.S. Park Service. It's pretty cool, especially if you enjoy history. The Battle of Guilford Courthouse was the last major battle of the Revolutionary Way before the Battle of Yorktown - where the British Army under Lord Cornwallis surrendered.

    As mentioned above, one of Greensboro's buslines has a stop right in front of our house. Our neighborhood is very walkable.
