These peer-to-peer travel sites connect tourists with locals. 
Airbnb isn't the only site that's tapped into the sharing economy to forever change the way we see the globe.

"But without complementary actions to encourage healthy alternative options to the processed foods that have flooded the Mexican market and the country’s poorest neighbourhoods in particular, the tax seems to be merely a grab for a share of the lucrative junk food trade that the government's own policies have facilitated."
For several years now, transnational food companies have understood that their main growth markets are in the South. To increase their profits they need to “dig into the pyramid”, as one company puts it, meaning they need to develop and sell products targeted at the millions of the world's poor.

Such a shame. The 2015 Ultra Caballo Blanco, scheduled to take place this past weekend, was cancelled due to drug-related violence in the town of Urique in Mexico's Copper Canyon region.

"It nurtures the illusion that career and economic success can lead to fulfillment, which is the central illusion of our time."
China’s future may be determined as much by its spiritual struggle as by its new capitalist ethos.
