An interview that started out about tips for people considering retiring in Mexico morphed into a profile about me as a housesitter! How cool is that?!
California’s Kelly Hayes-Raitt has heeded a distinctive rhythm by financing a political activist’s life as a house sitter in Lake Chapala, London, Paris, Copenhagen and the outskirts of Amsterdam.
Her nomadic existence has offered the opportunity to write and edit about Iraqi and Palestinian refugees at LivingLargeInLimbo.com and by blogging for Violating Sanctions [www.PeacePATHFoundation.org -- my old blog].
Hayes-Raitt is a lifelong political activist and spokesperson for campaigns championing women’s rights, environmental cleanup, consumers’ rights and other social justice causes.
She has house sat in Chapala, Mexico since 2010, her away home from mid-September to mid-February and from April to June.
