Tourism is based on the American model of consumption. Websites like Hospitality Club and CouchSurfing address the needs of travelers who are tired of being part of the tourist machine. This video ventures away from showing people where and how to spend their money.  Instead, it encourages travelers to develop friendships and experience local cultures.  Check out www.hospitalityclub.org, www.couchsurfing.com, www.warmshowers.org, www.wwoof.org, www.helpx.net, www.organicvolunteers.com, and Craigslist rideshare.

 Special thanks to Paola and Edgar for their enthusiasm and willingness to participate in this video!
