My name is Paula, I am from Colombia. I am studying anthropology in the University of los Andes in Bogotá. 10 years ago my parents built our home, that home is probably one of the most important thing of our family. Few months ago with my siblings we decided to make a project where we can help people from the zone, support their work and also promote organic food, so we decided to create an eco restaurant where we will sell healthy food. and we will buy all the products from people of the area, moreover the restaurant will have a small market with organic products. Also in the house we want to make a cultural project where people can talk about current issues, enjoy a presentation of colombian culture, watch art projects; we will like to make a kind of a cultural center. However, it requieres a lot of work so we are asking for your help.

You are going to live 30 minutes from Bogotá (The capital city of Colombia) so you can experience the live in a big city and also the live in the country side.
Life in the country side of Bogotá, in front of the mountain, and help building a local eco restaurant
You will have your own room with your own bathroom.
The house is located 30 minutes away from Bogotá and there are plenty of things to do in Bogotá, it is a big city. Also, near the house there is a mountain so you can hike and enjoy the nature.
Moreover, I will take you to do some activities like ride horse, play tejo (a colombian popular game), go to party, go to the small towns near Bogotá, ride bike, or we can plan more activities that you will expect to do. Yo for sure are gonna experience colombian culture.
