Last year my family and I were graciously hosted by a number of communities as we traveled around and I was surprised that when I asked, not many cohousing residents actually ever get over to visit the cohousing group down the street, much less go to a dinner, or spend a night. I would have thought exchanges would have such huge learning value but I guess that isn't an interest in many other people who live in cohousing already. For example we stayed in some nice guest rooms and almost all the former guests had been cohousing seekers, not people who already live in cohousing in other places. It seems like if you are traveling somewhere, its a great opportunity to stay in a cohousing guest space and see what things they have learned. I would love to see a couple of cohousing groups work out an exchange system, but given my experiences, I am doubtful that it will actually happen. Once people move in, the majority seem to lose all interest in anything but their own place. Rob Sandelin
