Martin- I'm very surprised that you felt at all uncomfortable during your stay. In all our conversations (none of them about how you were in distress or troubled!), you seemed affable, and happy to be traveling. I did mistake you for your girlfriend since she was in your profile picture during our coorespondence - and if me admitting my mistake made you feel at all any less of a man or person, I regret that. Nice new picture by the way! Can I suggest next time, particularly when traveling to different countries, that you try being more direct and honest with folks if you are experiencing any difficulties? That way no assumptions get made and a host can immediately address any misconceptions. And on my part going forward, I will make sure my guests understand that it is more than OK to come to me with any concerns. Thanks for your considerations!
