We hosted two young men in 2011. We learned a lot about the Cyprus situation, which was good for us, and our guests learned they had a lot in common (music, grooming, life-goals) as well. Both were unfailingly polite and appreciative. Their "Americanization" was sometimes amusing (Orlando, the Grand Canyon, and NYC are not close to each other!), but their very good English ran rings around our limited, tourist Greek and non-existent Turkish! We still treasure their observations of our lifestyle, particularly regarding how each culture handles extended-family challenges. Through the internet we hear from them occasionally, particularly when world events include Cyprus or our area. Expanding both our and their worldwide experience is a lasting, wonderful benefit of the CFP. And, you have to believe it's harder to "hate" after you've spent a month living in the same room with your "enemy". This is "good deed doing" at the highest level for all involved. (All said and done, we probably spent several hundred dollars being part of the CFP, but truly, it was money so well spent.)
