This was a very nice discovery today. I found a place that is very open to foreign visitors. The owners can communicate in English, but please be kind and take some time to discuss details with them. English is not their first language, but they are reported to be GREAT hosts for foreign visitors.

Get off the beaten track of a regular hotel and stay some place cool. Here is the website:
