    actually what i need is somebody to help me construct my home in the colca valley, situated in arequipa-peru, 3hours away from arequipa.
    in exchange i will provide with shared accomodation in a small hut and some food in exchange with building help. all this is very rustic and basic, but the nature scenery is breathtaking!

    is anybody interested and how long would you be able to come for? i need somebody at least for 2 months.

    thanks... caroline

  • Accommodation


    at the colca valley in a small village called coporaque, not far from chivay, were you can get transport to arequipa in about 3 hours or less.
    i am renting a small adobe house which ive converted it into a cafe, so we will have to share the main bedroom or else i can sleep in the cafe part.
    all of this is basic and if you have to bathe, its in the hot springs, where the locals go.but otherwise their is a toilet and all the other services.
    please non smoker or very light smoker outside.

    this is situated in a very beautiful part of the colca valley, small village called coporaque.
    there are lots of ruins around , super walks all very adventurous, and you will learn about the collaguas and cabana culture, lots of interacting!
    you can also visit lots of nearby villages alongside the colca river.
    apart from that you can take days of to visit arequipa, the white city, it only takes a bus which costs ca. $4 o.w and 2-3 hours ride.
