Athiti Devo Bhava!
We’ve all had cousins, uncles, friends stay with us. And its only a question of who you know and could’ve known.
Travellers to other cities are forced to pick from a host of cold ( = corporate), impersonal, expensive options. And run-of-the-mill “restauranty” food (some of my friends in sales crib about this one a lot). Many of us have a room at home we use only occasionally, and wouldn’t mind sharing if it helps someone we know or who knows someone we know or who knows someone who knows…. you get the idea.
We’ll make sure people your hosts/guests are people you’re comfortable with. We’ll make sure you have all the info (that we’d have verified) and that you give us a go-ahead. We’ll also maintain ratings and credentials and references so you know exactly what you’re getting into.
Here’s hoping to friendlier stays, better food and – like my wife says – better use of resources :D
