Hosting in Hastings

I am on holiday and staying with my parents in Hastings this week. They had a Brazilian English language teaching staying with them as well. The chap who organised his trip asked my father to transport two of the man's students to their host family. The host family turned out to be living in a rather rough looking neighbourhood in Hastings. She also owned a rather fierce looking bull terrier. I am not sure I would have wanted to stay there. I was interested to see the hostess asked the two Brazilian girls to leave their shoes outside the house before they came in. Maybe to avoid them getting chewed up by the bull terrier?

Totally agree with no shoes policy. It’s always such a hassle to clean the dirt from carpets. We usually walk bare foot inside our homes.
