I am Elio. I live in front of Machu picchu, I am beginning a new project for welcoming tourist in a really nice place on the salkantay trek, we live between the jungle and high montain, about 2 - 3 hours from the first town, we need help in this wild place where no machine can come.
It is a family property where I live with my mother, she sometimes does the work for welcome tourist and she needs help to grow the place, maintain the garden and working on the landscape.
Currently we do not have people working with us and my mother and I are not enough to cover the tasks of cleaning in the field, collecting firewood and vegetables, cooking or to build a small wooden house.
