    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    i can discuss with travellers in english, french and german about art, politics, music, architecture and philosophie. i am a good cook and there will be a nice dinner every evening. travellers could learn how to do mosaic work and how to build natural stone walls without morter.

  • Help


    i need good allround builders, especially someone who is good in plumbing and electricity. i also need someone for building a garden wall, and reparing this and that in the house for the oncoming tourist season.
