As soon as we spotted the FREE TEA sign,
Chris and I smiled at each other, then raced towards the school bus parked across the street. Could this be some sort of joke? Curious, we took a peek inside: there was a library, a kitchen, a bed, and a very diverse group of smiley, tea-drinking strangers.

A self-claimed hobo and social adventrepreneur, Guisepi is the man behind the Free Tea Party, a non-profit that cultivates community through the serving of free tea. For him, tea parties are a way to bring people of different ages, backgrounds and beliefs together - much like CouchSurfing!
