I am a youthful, healthy, just retired health care professional, Registered Nurse and Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist. After 50 years in health care, I am now able to enjoy my freedom and travel a bit as well as maintain my life in India, where I have been going for 24 years. I am now single, a mother and grandmother. I love dogs and cats...have had a few..none now. I am a very good cook, speak fairly good French and I am working on Italian. No smoking, very little drinking, no drugs, ever. I love classical music and opera, read a lot, love independent cinema, good food, good coffee, good conversation. These are essential for me as well as a FIRM MATTRESS. I am an independent person, a good companion and never mind answering health questions. See my website: (website hidden). I have been doing volunteer health care work in India for many years. I am a responsible, quiet and cooperative guest. I appreciate a peaceful environment.
