On the homestay experience.

It’s funny getting to know people in the context of their homes; having the previous day’s stranger explain to you, while drying her feet with a hair dryer in the living room that because the foot towel, which the whole family uses, is dirty, this is how I should dry my feet.  I had never before thought about the fact that I don’t dry my feet.  And then there’s her husband who comes out with his belt fastened through his zipper and a stack of English conversation books from the library, including one on Ham radio conversation from 1992.
