  • Description


    Hi everyone!!! We are two dynamic and nice brothers, Injad & Arkan, having a building in which we rent flats for locals and tourists. We decided to make the building more cosy and new so we would need your help in decoration, design, webmarketing & help with tourists and cleaning. Indeed, we are missing time (Injad has another work) and we need hands because there are so many things to do :). Your creativity, your artistic or business skills are more than welcome and we detailed in another section the main tasks you can do.
    What about us? We are two open minded guys that like meeting people from all around the world. We like enjoying life, sharing and also working hard. We are used to receive many people in our place :). We are interested in arts. We both like drawing and we like live music so much. Injad plays guitare and others instruments. He likes also motorcycles, diving, archaeology, philosophizing and knowing more about psychology. Arkan likes cooking, dancing, hiking, traveling, discussing and having fun.
    You are more than welcome to come and help us in our place and spend a good time with us!
