  • Description


    Hi! My name is Namfon. I am 24 years old. My hometown is Muengnoiy (nongkhiew). I am currently living in Luang Prabang for almost 12 years. So it's like my second home. I love to have people around because I live with my niece . I'm a very quiet person, when you first meet me, but when you get to know me I'm very talkative. Now I've started my own small project to do what I love. I know how to sew almost everything. I'm a tailor. I love crochet. I'm a good weaver. I can do almost anything that you can imagine because I grew up in the village.
    So in the moment I need someone to help teaching English for my niece
    And help me organise the shop...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will experience a very Laos lifestyle because you will live with me. I can teach you to cook some Laos food . We will go around the city with my bike. And maybe on my day-off we may go explore in the village. And for the food we eat Asian food and you will eat with us (for extra and special food your have to respond your own ) we can exchange and share with whatever we have!
