We were picked up at the airport by a taxi service recommended by the owners of the Omiis home. We arrived on Saturday evening and the taxi driver helped us to find the grocery store. The house was very comfortable with more than ample supplies of sheets and towels, and kitchenware. There were 6 adults in our party and we all enjoyed the lovely old town and the view of the river. We were there long enough to meet some of the local people who we found to be very friendly and helpful. Miriam had made arrangements with the tourist agency to help us as well as the caretaker. We took a trip upriver with Evan and we saw him most days. We asked him to take us to the airport when we returned and he was delighted. The house was super, the people were super and the weather cooperated most days. It was a wonderful month for us all.
