You use a map or a booklet with information about the city. That's ok... although... feels a bit like work... and is somewhat lonely.
PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE
You ask a passer-by for directions... Or simply, a passer-by recognizes your "tourist" behavior, stops on his/her own will and spends 30 seconds (often much more) helping you. You feel good. The passer-by feels even better. Witnessing onlookers feel good too. What happens is an easy, almost instinctive "give and take"... so natural that we don't even think about who "gives", who "takes", or why is this happening. This is not "giving"... people are just helping each other.
SO... WHAT IS AIDPAGE?
Aidpage is a free public space on the Web where you can:
--- Speak out about your problems and needs.
--- Act upon your need to help others.
Aidpage fosters informal communication, sharing of experience, and mutual support.
E-Bay enables the simple, direct "people buying from people" over the Internet.
