Spacious family home in Philadelphia, PA (USA). Has good vibes. Many foreign visitors over the years. Lots of nice people to meet while staying here. Truly an international household. Many ESL students have lived here. Also I have traveled extensively through Africa, Southeast Asia, South America working with a volunteer group. My adopted children are from Laos, Iran and Vietnam. They have grown up and fled the coup. I enjoy learning other cultures and now with my disability I need them to come to me.

Nice people to stay with. We'll help you learn or to improve your English. Philadelphia is near New York and Washington with airport not far away and local train into the City of Philadelphia. We will share meals. Perhaps we'll sit by the fish pond and simply watch the water fall with the birds taking their baths or we'll sit on the back deck and solve the world's problems as the birds feed and chirp around us. We can play games. Take long drives. Teach each ither cultural cooking
Some general help with chores in the home (sweeping, mopping, dusting). Throwing a load of wash in now and then. Letting two dogs in and out of house. Clean up after doggies. Carrying groceries from car to house.

Plenty to do in Philadelphia with concerts, museums, theater, hiking, etc. I have two doggies - one that is very playful. Many of my friends will take you with them to hike, listen to music, or sometimes you'll simply enjoy the quiet but interesting moments that come with being at "5940" (that's what we call this home). Lot's of interesting conversations take place here. We often solve the worlds problems from the kitchen table over a good meal or some wine or coffee.

I have good internet/Wi1Fi at my home. I don't mind someone doing their work as long as it is consuming all their time and we agree on how much time they work for me and how much on the Internet.
As long as it is not a long large vehicle.
