Bonjour mon ami!
My name is Jaime Becktel and I fancy myself to be a multifarious artist living in the delightful little town of Mancos, Colorado.
I am a painter, gardener, horsewoman, anthropologist, community builder, singer, art teacher, traveler, writer. I like the mountains, any and all bodies of water, the desert, trees, decadent meals, good wine, fantastic local microbrews, thriftstore shopping, solo trekking, studying languages, my family, my friends and meeting interesting folk from all walks.
I consider myself a respectful, tidy and enthusiastic houseguest. As a host, I'm very friendly, accommodating and genuinely excited to have you as a guest in my home.
My style of traveling varies. Sometimes I'm a trekker, sometimes I'm a cultural maven, sometimes I'm a camper, sometimes I'm a decadent Cleopatra wanna-be and in between I'm a little homebody.
My opinion of Airbnb is glowing. This invention is the best thing to happen to me since the electric toothbrush. It is a fantastic nexus of connectivity that brings together interesting and kind hearted people from different cultures to share each others space and almost always some good laughs. :)
