... German. So lots to discuss, luckily the conversation hits more than just the usual name, coming from/going to chats that become old news in hostels. We are lucky that the home stay here is owned by genuine, caring locals and very welcoming. The owner himself an avid tracker in the mountains but unable to join our trip. His wife is a bit quiet and doesn't always understand but her food is yummy ...
