Great opportunity to exchange life paths with a Czech Spanish Aztec origin family consisting of Mother and Son, living together again after years apart. Son has moved back to help on the family hobby farm in the land of 10,000+ lakes. We have large vegetable gardens which we share, forest, a trout stream and pastures. We have continuous projects to maintain the hobby farm consisting of a large home and buildings.
