They help tcl'ers to travel

Kroc 2004-10-05: When you go to a foreign country for the very first time, things are easiest if a local (an inhabitant :-)) gets to help you. He/She can help you find a cheap accomodation or a good restaurant, tell you the kind of transport you can use to reach a given place, take you around his city. And this will be done far better than you could do it with Internet.

So, if you're ready to help Tcl'ers who wish to come to your country or city, just add your name in the list below (please keep countries in alphabetical order and sub-categorize by state name for USA or province name for Canada).
