About the Host, Kopila
I am an academician running a small preschool in in the neighborhood with two other partners. My home has a studio apartment that I have been renting out to travelers and volunteers. I am trying to be an example in the neighborhood by taking Eco-friendly measures. So I produce as less garbage as possible. Make my own compost and do rooftop gardening, use solar power. Hosting foreign guests supports me financially to sustain my Eco-friendly lifestyle. As well as I can get more ideas from cultural exchange.
