    Hey

    My name is Barbara and I’m looking for help with various things. I live close to Montevideo in a beautiful part of Uruguay, next to a river (2 minutes walk) and not far from the beach (15 minutes walk). I live together with my 9 year old son Sahel in a house which I’ve built myself with help of some volunteers. At the moment we are building two bedrooms, in form of domes. I could recieve someone with experience in building, electricity etc who helps finish off the project.

    Also I’m looking for some help starting as soon as possible with basic housekeeping like cleaning, cooking and organising. Help look after my 9 year old son Sahel by playing games, going on walks or help with homework. As well as other little tasks that come with having a house and garden. I live in a really nice, quiet and relaxing neighbourhood next to the river Pando. There’s the river and forest very close by and the sea is only 30 minutes walk. The exchange will include food and accommodation for around 5 hours a day. Flexibility with work hours is best. I will be working and studying online most of the day so your help is really appreciated!

    I like to eat healthy and provide three meals a day. I’ve got a wooden cabin on my property for two people and some space in my house. The neighbourhood I live in is famous for artist residents and there are many projects going on like Music and Art Workshops. Every Saturday there is a Circle of drummers playing candombe around a fire. If you’re keen to help with building projects or basic household help and want to know about peoples life here please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat.

    Hopefully see you soon Barbara!
