If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
When I lived in Bucaramanga, I traveled on few weekends to a nearby town where my little cousins ​​lived there and I used to play with them, watched movies, we practiced basketball in a park closed to their house. I visited their grandparent's farm located in the middle of mountains and coffee crops where they explained me the process to dry the coffee in the roof of their houses.
I have shared experiences taking care of my nephews. When we spend time together we play board games and go outside to play. Besides, when we want to do something differente we go to the countryside where my father's farm is located and we water the plants and feed some calfs.
