> Farming).
> My wife Kamal is inexperienced but eager to begin her learning.
> We are both hard workers, good cooks and easy to get along with.
> I can milk goats and make cheese.
> We are looking to stay 1 to 3 days on farms along our way.
> In exchange for our work we would like a place to sleep and perhaps some
> food.
> If there is no accomodations all we need is a place to set up our
