What types of activities should we expect to be participating in at the homestay?
There is a wide range of activities that we have participated in. Some
of our guests have gone out in the fields and actually got into the mud
and planted rice. Others, have befriended one of the young women and
was taken to her house to have tea. Sometimes the guest are up for some
more trekking and we go for a short walk in the mountains. And, others
prefer to just sit and relax. Helping out with the cooking and some of
the chores is encouraged so that you can get a better understanding of
The people at the homestay are quite shy. Especially with their English. They can speak a little English and actually it is enough to have a conversation. Although, they do need some encouragement. We ask you to be active in communicating with the family, askin them questions about their lives. They are always happy to answer, often showing you and getting you involved in order for you to better understand.
