The property is located near Almaty city. It is a country house. Many families keep this kind of summer houses in our country. In Russian language we call it "dacha". It is some kind of addition to apartment that was allowed by Soviet government so people could grow their own food. This kind of houses were special to our people as most of things there were created with their own hands. People put their souls in dachas. Those houses were places where people could emotionally relax and take a rest from city life.

Or family owns one of those. I'm a traveler on my own and come back to Kazakhstan very seldom. My mother takes care of our dacha and shares her love with this land. HelpX is perfect solution for her because she doesn't have time to take care of all things there. So basically your work will be helping around the house in exchange for a place to stay. We have some warm community of seniors formed with many years that you could learn about culture of our country from.

There are some activities that you might be interested in during your free time. Our dacha is very close to mountains so you could explore them. Also there is male monastery in the mountains that is welcoming guests. You may find it interesting to take horse ride. We have sauna on territory of our dacha that was built by my father, you're welcome to use it any time.
