Accommodation and food

Something very special: We live with local families and are fully involved in family life. The accommodations are clean but very, very spartan. Cooking takes place over an open fire in front of the house. The menu plan is discussed with the housewife beforehand and everything necessary is bought at the market.
To wash, you take a bowl of water and go to the little wash house.
Next door is another little house with a hole in the middle - this is the toilet.

  • An air ticket will be in the range from 900 thru 1300 EUR (each participant books his own flight).
  • Visa 50 USD.
  • The families are very hospitable and apart from us they never have foreign guests. That is why it is difficult for them to negotiate prices. As an empirical value, you calculate with 100 EUR per week.
