    ### LOOKING FOR SB WILLING TO STAY MORE THAN ONE MONTH. The longer the better. ####


    Live with a non traditional family and enjoy the sunniest city in Spain. We are my almost 3 years old daughter Binta and myself, Ana , living in a beautiful and bright house in the outskirts of an historical and interesting city called Cartagena (in fact, one of the sunniest of Europe). I am a yoga teacher and I am currently running my own project for children, trying to implement yoga at schools. I´m specialized in yoga for kids, so as u can imagine I love being around children...but my favorite is my daughter. Binta is two years old and she is...😍just incredible. As I have travelled a lot and always moved meeting new people, I feel very important for the spiritual, personal and educational growth of my kid to be around people from different cultures and languages. I got also a Master trainining in Free/alternative education so I am also seeking for people who are interested in that or have any knowledge.
    My city is Cartagena, is a beautiful coast area with mild winter and really hot summers. It is a very interesting place if you like history or fancy outdoor Sports as you can practice watersports during all year. Also the city is surrounded by amazing mountains and Hills in case you like climbing or hikking.
    As we live in the outskirts so being able to drive, use a bike or take a bus is important (the city is 40 min walking, 15min driving)
    I am vegetarian, but Binta is only vegetarian when she is with me (I mean she is free to try things when she is with her grandparents)
    I would like to host someone who loves kids and wants to spend some time with us. This is the most important for me, that u like being with binta and Binta likes being with u.You will have a private huge and light wellfurnitured room, with Internet. The person will be ideally like a part of the family, sharing meals and general tasks. I love dancing and music and love being with people who loves arts. The idea for next september will be someone who can stay longer and help us with the house and some hours for language exchange in a playful and natural way. It wont be a lot of hours as Binta will be in September at school. So a maximum of 12 hours a week in exchange of accommodation.
    We live in an area where you can listen birds while having lunch and then hens in the morning (some days not very pleasant); it is a small town just 40 min walking to Cartagena or 15 min by car. There are buses every 20 minutes and, you can use a bike too, as it is not very hilly. The area itself has supermakets, bars, restaurants, shops and library so, it can be a nice area to walk around if you dont want to go to Cartagena.
    I will need someone who is flexible, willing to work and not only being a guest (let's say proactiva) and who can understand a bit the life of a working single mom (i dont need more tasks, i need less). I consider myself very flexible too, so, someone easygoing to live with.
