As soon as I got to the Homestay, after a 38 hours trip, one of the hosts told me I wouldn't have the three meals as it was agreed on. The other host offered me to not teach, since he was not offering me the meals. I told them I would give it a try for a week, because since I was not expecting to pay for food, my budget was not prepared for that.
After a week I was making friends, adapting to the place and decided to stay. Long story short, they started to push me a lot of housework to compensate and told me I was taking advantage of the homestay. I was literally told I wasn't welcome there.

Sorry for your inconvenience, Tomaz. You are the greatest person we've meet. I don't have any explanation. Sorry again.
