Guide “Blog” for the Blind…

Do you know anyone with low vision or are blind?

Over two years ago i started to write a blog aimed primarily at expats living in Spain, “The Expats Window.” At that time i estimated that there were approx. 34000 blind or vision impaired British and German expats living in Spain and there was a distinct lack of support available. The 34000 excludes other foreign nationals.  Over time the readership of the blog has steadily increased. Not surprisingly the greatest number of hits are from the USA but Spain is 4th behind the UK and Ukraine!!

There are light-hearted as well as the more serious articles with information about the latest research into treatments for eye diseases such as Macula Degeneration and Retinitis Pigmentosa. The Blind Expats Window is a platform for entertainment, information and discussion. I am continuously looking for new contributions especially with local (Spanish) interest for posting and of course new readers. Most people who are officially registered as Blind have some vision, in that i include myself, and by various means manage to read albeit sometimes with difficulty.

I only ask if anyone out there know of someone who fits the bill please let them know about the Blind Expats window. I look forwars to many more hits and contributions from Spain.

She is originally Bulgarian and was an English teacher there so English no problem. Learning Spanish at the moment and willing to do anything to be able to return.

So anything will do. Cleaning, housekeeping or looking after someone.

She is open to anything.
