Who would want to come to Brantford?
That is the question often posed when I try to explain the Home Exchange idea to others in my area. When I review the number of invitations for an exchange over the past years, it is quite amazing how many people think it would be a great place to visit: people from France, Holland, Finland, Russia, America, Egypt, Israel, the list is quite impressive. The point is: we are too close to the area in which we live to continue to appreciate what it has to offer. What could be more interesting than for someone from Paris or Holland to visit the Six Nations Reserve near Brantford and to attend the annual Powwow which brings together aboriginal people from all over Canada and the US? We have so much to offer and are almost too close to appreciate it.
