    Description

    Ok, here it goes:

    I live in the middle of nowhere by a river.

    I build a little house and am focusing now on creating food gardens and some more structures.

    It is important to understand that this isn't a place for people who can't live without a certain level of luxury.

    There is no hot shower here, no running water.
    A rainwater tank is the main water source besides the rivers. There is a spring with potable water.

    Compost toilet.

    Internet is not reliable, was just off for days.
    Since it comes from a prepaid mobile card, the use is expensive and therefore restricted.

    To me this place is paradise, but if you are used to the luxuries of city life, it may just be a nightmare.

    Just making sure you don't come with false expectations :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Natural building, gardening.

    I can teach basic meditation techniques, but believe that there is not much to teach... just a lot to do.

    Help

    The help that I need help with is mainly creating food gardens and building houses.

    Right now I need to build a water tower.

    Right now there is my little earth house and a tiny shed on the beautiful 7 HA property with a river for bathing and a stream to enjoy fresh clear water.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    A wooden shed I lived in for quite a while before moving into my new house.

    It's small 3x3m but it's way better than a tent.
    In winter it can be quite cold at night.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The place is about 30 minutes from the next city, Rocha, and about one hour from the coast.

    It's a 45 minute walk to get to the road, where buses pass about 4 times a day.

    I have a car and go to Rocha about once or twice a week.
