A person or a couple (NON SMOKERS!) needed to run the household, feed animals etc, in the absence of the owner (when she travels). When the owner is in, the helper is free. Then s/he may stay in a bed-sit in Belgrade and sight-see the town. Both places are at the full disposal of the helper, but they must be cleaned.
The household consists of four dogs, two cats and several hens. The owner, an elderly, but active woman (a languages teacher and a film-director), travels and is absent during the week days. Therefore, the house is not as tidy as it should and it needs cleaning/maintenance. The host doesn`t cook, helpers must provide for their food (for which they get money when the host isn`t in).
The land in her property is covered with grass and there are some fruit-trees. There is a river in the vicinity to swim in the summer. The air is clear and there is very little traffic in the street. A doctor`s office and a post-office are present in the village. The pictures show (from left to right): the river; a stork`s nest in front of the village-church (this picture is not to stress religious beliefs); a horse with a wagon in front of the store; an apple tree in owner`s garden; the owner on the apricot-tree.
The owners intention is to keep hens on all that land in order to produce organic eggs. Also a small-scale shelter for dogs and cats.
For a helper it may be interesting to get introduced to Serbian rural life in Voyvodina; the Serbian, Russian, Polish language teaching, photography or film-making lessons possible. Amateur dog-training lessons also available. Ideal for a person, who likes solitude or melancholy.
