    My name is Justin and I live with my parents on a large property that we own and that borders Lake General Carrera. My father bought this land in 2004 when there was nothing on it and now we have various structures built that includes a lodging business for tourists to stay. I came shortly after from the United States to help run the business alongside my father and mother.

    We have a beautiful piece of land that needs constant upkeep. Tourists who come see this place are in awe of its beauty. We really enjoy living here and are thrilled to share this place with all of our guests.

Mi padre compró esta tierra en 2004 y desde la fecha hemos hecho varias estructuras que incluyen un Lodge y cabañas para el turismo. Yo llegué en 2011de los Estados Unidos para apoyar a mis padres con su nuevo negocio.

    Tenemos un hermoso campo que necesita mantenimiento constante. Los turistas que vienen a ver este lugar están impresionados por su belleza. Realmente disfrutamos de la vida aquí y estamos encantados de compartir este lugar con todos nuestros huéspedes.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My family is from the United States and Chile has adopted us. We love this country and its people. We have traveled throughout Aysen, Chile and can share insight on travel routes, ease of access and where you make your next few stops. Also, we have locals working on the property from the nearby village who like to socialize and share some good laughs and of course a few rounds of Mates. Lastly Workawayers will like our place because of the comfort and tranquility this land offers. Here you will be able to meditate near stunning views of the lake and mountains and be one with nature.

    Mi familia es de los Estados Unidos y Chile nos ha adoptado. Estamos muy afortunado de estar en un país tan bello de gente encantadora. Conocemos bastante de esta region y podemos asesorar con las rutas del viaje para tus próximas paradas. Además, tenemos gente de la zona que trabaja en nuestra propiedad y les gusta compartir con otros unas buenas buenas risas y unos buenos Mates. Por último, a Workawayers les encantara parar aca con nosotros por la comodidad y la tranquilidad que ofrece esta zona. Aquí podrán meditar frente a unas vistas espectaculares del lago y de las cordillera y conectarese mas con la naturaleza.

    We constantly work on cleaning up our land. Our land can be a beautiful park someday. We are looking for anyone who could lend a hand in landscaping, gardening, all around outdoor clean up and maybe even kitchen chores. Also we are constantly building, so we need help transporting construction materials to the job sites, loading and unloading fill for our foundations and cleaning up the construction sites.

    Trabajamos constantemente en la limpieza del campo. Algun dia esta propiedad puede ser un hermoso parque natural. Estamos buscando a alguien que puede trabajar en cortar y acarear maleza, trabajar el invernadero y huerto, despejar areas que presentan peligros de incendios y tambien necesitamos ayuda en la cocina para la comida del personal. Finalmente estamos en construyendo mucho, por lo que necesitamos ayuda para transportar materiales del galpon a los sitios de trabajo, la carga y descarga de relleno para nuestras fundaciones y limpieza de los sitios de construcción.
