Because of the idea behind this small experiment, with host families keeping 100% of any money you pay, Anthropolodgy has so far not led to any income, but some small expenses. Hosting fees are covered by me personally. The idea behind it all is to help travellers find unique places to visit and local families a way to attract guests.
