    Hello to all good people

    I was spending 5 weeks with this beautiful family. I arrived at the house because the mother invited me, I founded a small school and I had an uniqua and wonderful experience. It's me who is writing this anonymity. When they have questions, they can also ask me and forgive me for my Spanish, this is not my native language😉

    We are a family with two daughters of 12 and 13 years old and a son who is studying abroad. Also part of the family are 5 dogs, 3 cats, 2 ducks and a chicken. We live in a small indigenous community near Otavalo next to the beautiful lake San Pablo and the volcano imbabura.
    We were very happy to share and exchange with different people from all over the world. We speak Castilian and Kichwa.
    We are looking for a young person who wants to live for some time with us, teach English to our daughters and other children and youth or adults of the community, share and participate in our lives.
    You have your private room and you can feel at home. We have wifi. We cook every day and we hope that the food you like, again also the kitchen is always open for you.
    The minimum stay is one month.
    Are you a happy person? Do you speak English and Spanish? Do you like animals? Are you interested in the Kichwa culture and want to teach English?
    Get in touch. We are happy to hear from you😃

    Note; For us it is very important that our girls have a good model, so we want to host a person who does not smoke and does not drink a lot of alcohol.
