    Descripción

    Because of the current corona virus situation, I am holding off hosting folks until the government allows normal interactions due to a diminished threat. Let's hope that in four weeks things will be better and we can all get to enjoy our work/travels.

    In May and June I need help cleaning, sanding, painting and preparing my boats for the summer. The work is not technical, but you should have some experience with hand tools sanding, and painting as well as general cleaning. All work is done outside.

    In July, August, and September I generally have fewer volunteers, and those who come help me more with cooking both on the BBQ dining boat and at home. My boats are not a business — I have them only for the enjoyment of myself, my friends, and my guests.

    In late September and October, I need help bringing the boats back on land and prepared for winter stofage. I do not need helpers from November 2020 through March 2021.

    I am a retired dual citizen American/Italian with a small apartment in Italy in a beautiful small village of 100 people a few minutes from Lake Como and thirty minutes from Lugano, Switzerland.

    Any non-smoker of any age is welcome to come help, and on free time to explore this beautiful area alone or with me.

    You can reach me by bus from either the city of Como or the Swiss city of Lugano.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Working and being on my boats affords not only a chance to learn about small water craft, but also about the beauty and culture which can be found both on Lake Como and Lake Lugano.

    In addition, the village I live in dates from the middle ages. Across the tiny piazza I live on is a large, well-known villa of an Italian baron, and immediately adjacent to the village is an enormous nature preserve (Val Sanagra) with its history of mills which produced silk, metal works, and tiles. Within 20 minutes of my house are cultural centers which offer music, gardens and architecture known the world over.

    Finally, interactions with myself allow for interesting cultural exchanges based on my personal history, enjoyment of playing and listening to music, and shared cooking exchanges for different cultures and countries.

    Alojamiento

    You will have a private bedroom and share the bath. In exchange for your help, you will also receive home meals. I eat meat, but if you are a basic vegetarian, I will try to accommodate you, or you can cook with food I will provide.

    This is an extremely beautiful area. My village borders an enormous nature preserve with hiking trails, and of course there are the lakes Como and Lugano.

    You can reach me by bus from either the city of Como or the Swiss city of Lugano.
