    Description

    Hi here Im in the middle of the pyrenes. living alone with 1 dog, between a river and a canal since easter 2009. Originaly the place was an old centre industriel it all started around 1884, remain of the place was then sold to the comunne, except an hydroelectric turbine date1900 and the guardian house.Im now employed to run the turbine and the house as been sold to me for a euro symbolic. Before that I was in uk for 20years, Living in Lamberth, I became a rock climbing instructor andcreated with some freinds The Brixton Climbers' club .I also got my horticultural diplome and created with some freinds a Organic London Farming reseau . .Climbing allowed me to travel around the world and now Im happy to stop here. I try to put in place another organic reseau here in the pyrenne, I got few gardens to look after, and the house to rennovate . for the moment I live in the square and need help as I got to move in it this years. So if you are what it take to do the job, welcome.
