  • Description


    Hi, We live in the mountains of Peru, a city named Cajabamba. I like to live surrounded by nature, hike and eat healthy.

    I am growing sugar cane and fruit trees in an organic way. The process is slow but rewarding. We hope we can continue doing that with your help.

    Yulia teaches Russian and I teach Spanish on line. We can practice languages with you as well.

    **from Trujillo or Lima you can take a direct bus to Cajabamba. (Goes by Huamachuco) or fly to Cajamarca.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn how we live and grow food in the mountains. I can get you in contact with Andean people so you got the opportunity to interact with them. I can help with translation or teaching you Spanish. I can be your guide around this town and the mountains surrounding it.

    I teach Spanish and if you are interested this is a good place to learn and practice. You just need to have a basic knowledge of English so you could make the best out of your stay and learning process.

    Cajabamba and the valleys surrounding the city have a lot to offer in regards to nature and hiking. There are hot springs that we can visit together.
