    Hi. I am a professional photographer. I also have a photography school in this wonderful town, San Martín de los Andes. I also have two houses for tourist rent in high season and in low season I share it in different ways. My friends come from Buenos Aires and I have been hosting on a different site for 10 years. At the moment I live alone and I have no children.

    There are times when it is difficult to get help with the garden and the general exterior maintenance of the houses. The houses are made of sheet metal and not much maintenance is necessary, but the openings are made of wood and year after year, we sand them very softly and give them 2 hands to impregnate you for wood. Other times we need to repair the wooden contentions, since it is a stepped terrain and these containments serve to support the land of the terraces that are small. In addition, although I speak a little English, I would like to deepen and practice that language more, as well as learn Italian and Portuguese. So in addition to exchanging for some gardening and maintenance work I can exchange for language classes.

    Hay veces que se complica conseguir personal para el jardín y el mantenimiento general exterior de las casas.
    Las casas son de chapa y no es necesario mucho mantenimiento, pero las aberturas son de madera y año tras año, las lijamos muy suaves y les damos 2 manos de impregnarte para maderas.
    Otras veces necesitamos reparar las contenciones de madera, ya que es un terreno escalonado y estas contenciones sirven para sostener la tierra de las terrazas que son pequeñas.
    Ademas si bien se hablar un poco de ingles me gustaría profundizar y practicar mas ese idioma, como así también aprender italiano y portugués. Así que ademas de intercambiar por algunos trabajos de jardinería y mantenimiento puedo intercambiar por clases de idiomas.
