Language exchange and some comradeship in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA



 Min stay requested: at least a week



  • Description


    My wife died about a year ago. Now that I am Alone I often wished that I had company to share a meal in the evening and to compare notes about how our day has gone. I have been studying Spanish for the past 150 days on Duolingo and would enjoy visitors who were fluent in Spanish. They would need some English since I have not had experience doing conversational Spanish. I am a retired engineer and have had a relaxation massage business since 2005. I also do energy healing work including Rieke and healing touch.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There are many opportunities to do volunteer work which bring people together. I volunteer at a cat welfare place and am struck by how loving and thoughtful my fellow volunteers are. The Freedom center is about the history of the Black population and how they dealt with racial discrimination-it is considered one of the best museums in the USA. The Contemporary Arts Center has fascinating and unusual exhibits: some are interactive especially for children.
    The Museum Center is unique. The Cincinnati Art Museum has great shows. There is a multicultural dance center in town which does modern dance and offers classes. The Cincinnati Zoo is quite special.
