    My name is Nina, I have lived in Lobitos for 12 years. I am looking for help converting my home into a guest house for surfer girls and other kinds of travelers from all over the world. Anyone with experience in carpentry, electrical technicial building, painting mural ), marketing, are welcome!!! This experience is perfect for anyone who loves to surf or just loves to be close to the beach. I have a dog, a cat, I'm a single mom of a beautiful 8-year old daughter and we love to learn, play and spend quality time together.
    I'm looking for different kinds of volunteers, as mentioned above, who are willing to contribute 4 hours of work a day, 5 days a week in exchange for a bed in a shared room. Volunteers can use the kitchen and we can share recipes from our countries if you like!
    Unfortunately I don't speak English well enough yet, but I love to receive friends from all over the world and will make an effort to communicate and learn. And sometimes I have English-speaking volunteers here with me :).

    Please keep in mind this is my home and I like to keep a peaceful, family environment. Also be aware that there are not many stores in Lobitos, only some small local stores. Somtimes a fruit-vegetable car will pass. In Talara is a big supermarket so I advice you to takesome groceries from there.
