Area: east javaI live in a small village named Kalianyar 15km from the nearest town (Bondowoso). With a friend I'm trying to set up a tourism program in my village. Our goal is to develop an eco-tourist village, and to offer visitors to learn about our way of life. So far weve tried plastic waste recycling training with the help of a friend from France. We are also starting to give extra English lessons or assist the English teacher at the kalianyar primary school. I am welcoming workers to come to my village to share my way of life, help me develop the tourism program (by talking, giving ideas) , give some English lessons depending on your level If you have any ability or experience in eco tourism and environment well be glad to learn from you. I live with my mom and my wife as well as one cute niece (5 years old). For the lessons to be effective, longer stays (at least 2 weeks) are preferred . Easy access to Bondowoso by bus. I can pick you up at the Bondowoso bus station. Internet access and supermarket available in Tamanan( 3 km away). We can provide bikes. From Bondowoso you can go to the Ijen volcano .
