In 2007, we want to go to Spain. (Scroll down to see the following message in English).

En Español:
Si usted vive en España junto al Mar Mediterraneo, estamos interesados en un intercambio de viviendas para vacaciónes , de 2 o 3 semanas, en julio/agosto 2007. Si es posible con cambio de automovil.

Nuestro hogar esta a las afueras de Chicago, cerca de las playas del lago Michigan, que es tan grande como un mar. El agua es mas fria que en el Mediterraneo, pero las playas son bonitas y nos gusta nadar alli.

Las principales atracciones son el lago y por supuesto la ciudad. Chicago es la 3ª ciudad mas grande de USA. Tiene bonitos museos y una hermosa arquitectura, ademas de restaurantes de toda clase, clubs musicales de jazz, blues y rock, y otros entretenimientos como teatro y musica clasica. Puede obtener informacion en City of Chicago Tourism site y en cuanto a espectaculos en Metromix.

Nuestra casa se construyo en 1910. Es una casa grande de ladrillo rojo. En la planta baja hay una Sala de estar comoda, un hermoso comedor, una cocina bien equipada y una habitacion con un sofa-cama y un televisor. La primera planta tiene 2 dormitorios con camas de matrimonio, 2 despachos y otra cocina. El sotano tiene una habitacionde invitados con cama de matrimonio y un office para la lavadora. Si algun miembro de la familia es aficionado a la musica, hay un piano en el comedor. En el patio tenemos muebles de jardin y una barbacoa. Mapa.

Nuestra familia esta compuesta por Richard, un escritor, Gail, una maestra del jardín de la infancia, y Zoe, una niña de 16 años a la que le encanta la cocina española, las aceitunas y esta aprendiendo piano.

Tenemos amigos en BCN que nos han visitado y con los que puede contactar.

In English:
If you live in Spain along the Mediterranean, we would like to exchange homes with you for two to three weeks in July-August 2007. We would like to exchange an automobile, as well, if possible.

Our home is located next to the city of Chicago and is close to the beaches of Lake Michigan. Lake Michigan is like a huge fresh water inland sea. The water is not as warm as the Mediterranean, but the beaches are pretty near our home, and we like to swim there.

The main attractions here are the lake and the city, of course. Chicago is the third largest city in the US. It has beautiful museums and architecture. Restaurants of every description. Great nightclubs for jazz, blues, rock and everything else you can imagine. It's also a great town for live theatre, classical music and other entertainments. You can find lots about Chicago at the City of Chicago Tourism site. You can find more about the Chicago entertainment scene at Metromix.

Our house was built in 1910. It's a large red brick house. On the first floor there's a comfortable living room, a beautiful dining room, a well-equipped kitchen and a family room with a rollout bed. The second floor has two bedrooms with queen size beds, two offices and an extra kitchen. The basement has a guest room with another queen size bed, a laundry and a rehearsal/workshop space. If there are any musicians in your family, there is a piano in the dining room.

We also have barbeque equipment and outdoor furniture on the patio in the yard. Map.

Our family includes Richard, a professional writer and theatre director, Gail, a kindergarten teacher, and Zoe, a sixteen year old girl who love olives, Spanish food, and who is learning the piano.
