Re: Winter job in a remote area, cabin, National park [Kazakhstan - Kirghizistan - Mongolia]

Hi,

Thank you Steven for your answer.
I'm contacting national parks and green organizations of the countries, perhaps they'll have a lead too !
I'll give news if I find something, which could be useful for the forum community.
