About the Homestay
Our family consists of 6 members: Edison, Marlene, Johan, Sofia, Gerson and our beloved dog Max. All of them easy-going and willing to learn more about the culture of a foreigner visitor. The family runs a small printing press in the Historic Center while the two young study.
Edison is a marathon-runner, enthusiastic, philosopher, and sometimes passionate father.
Marlene is the heart of the family, loving, caring, and taking care of the family and the business as well, every day she will ask you, how was your day? :)
Johan is a nice person and a fresh graduate working in education.
Sofia is a dreamer, open-minded, reader and studying visual arts at the San Francisco University.
Gerson is a friendly, easy-going teenager, studying his first years of high school
