Karikuy Bed & Breakfast Renovations

Posted by Julio C. Tello.

We’ve laid down some new flooring at the Bed & Breakfast and have begun putting the final touches on rooms that will be used to house our Volunteers this Winter in Lima. Today the construction phase ended and left a pretty big mess throughout the house. A mess that I will have to clean up by myself over the weekend.  Our volunteer Josh is traveling to Cusco and Machu Picchu over the weekend and won’t be around to help me clean up the massive amounts of saw dust lying around.


This new construction at the house has opened up an extra room at the B&B which is great because I can now have 4 volunteers working at the same time. This can only help our Perupedia project grow faster and also provide more content on a regular basis for this blog. The only thing left to fix up is the kitchen although we don’t use it at all other then a work and wash space, looks like that room will wait for next season. More volunteers begin arriving next week so be sure to check out their weekly blog posts on their travels and experiences in Peru.


As for me… well I’ll spend the weekend with my broom and bucket in between sending out emails to clients and taking our last entries for the Free Trip to Machu Picchu contest we are having. It’s going to be a busy weekend, but hey I’m looking forward to the next few months and getting a chance to meet and live with our volunteers, the anticipation is something that will help me get my mind off all the work I have in store the next couple of weeks for Karikuy.
