The village home stay provides an excellent opportunity for sitting around, doing nothing very much and watching the world go by. You'll see how food is gathered and prepared using very simple tools. In our home stay the food was prepared in a very simple kitchen and cooked on an in-ground fire. Bamboo provides an excellent fuel and can be progressively moved under the food as it burns. The food we were offered was fresh and delicious. Family and village life goes on about you and you can watch or participate depending on your energy levels. I got one of the women to give me a foot massage and it was excellent. She used some local herbs which were ground up and then applied after the massage. When I awoke in the morning my feet were like new.
