28 June 2011:

Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, an older woman called me "my dear" all night long, and all helped to teach me the card games they were playing, which was similar to Hearts. The one in blue is Fi, my host and travel agent. I'm still not sure how I feel about her using Couchsurfing as a way to get travel agent business, but there was no pressure and she found me the best prices and customized my trip, so I think overall it was still a great experience staying with her!
