When we got to Olmue, our host was nowhere to be found. So we waited in his pizza shop all afternoon for the bus that comes between 6-7pm and took that, with the direction to get off at a certain point in the middle of nowhere and walk for an hour to the house. Luckily, Kendra spoke to the driver and the bus dropped us at the stop in front of the house. There we were greeted by five female volunteers and none of the host family... we didn't actually meet the host until the next morning when we said hello to us, asked two of the girls to leave, and then left us again for a couple of days.
As you might imagine, we haven't had much instruction or communication in general, and are basically running the house on our own
After the second day, two of the yet girls left because they felt so uncomfortable with the lack of communication, and the fact that he had asked the other two girls to leave for no apparent reason (this is a lie, we have speculated reasons, and none faulting the girls). So, we are enjoying the scenery and animals and just trying not to over analyze our strange host. And it is really nice scenery... hills and little farms as far as you can see, a beautiful house, and amazing view of the sunset every night.
