  • Description


    I live in the countryside, in a small garden house with my 16 year old son and, and my housband. I live here for a very short time and I have not had time to develop the garden. There are olives but I would like to plant other fruit trees. But I have no knowledge of gardening and plant cultivation! I am a professor of sociology in Brazil where I lived until last year.

    I live in an area very rich in culture! In addition, I am a sociology professor at the University in Brazil, so I can offer reading or chatting about Latin American topics. I have traveled a lot and I love to know other cultures. I am also an excellent cook, and I can teach my recipes to travelers.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I would like to receive a nice traveler, available, who wants to exchange ideas about the world and know the environment. Someone who loves the countryside and gardening. And who also has to give little language lessons to my son.
    The nearest village to the house is 4 km. Unfortunately there is not much public transport, so the traveler must get off on a bike or on foot.

    Je voudrais recevoir un ou une voyageur sympa, disponible, qui a envie d'echanger des idée sur le monde et des connaitre l'environnement. Quelqu'un qui aime la campagne et le jardinage. Et qui a aussi de donner des petits cours de langue a mon fils.
    Le village le plus proches de la maison est a 4 km. Malhereusement il n y a pas beacoup de transport publique, donc le voyageurs doit se debrouiller en velo ou a pieds.
