We can rent at local rooms at local prices, I am always aware I am paying too much for rooms abroad.
68 Dollars Per Month Room Lake Atitlan Guatemala #Minimalism
Can you explain why you don't want to show a counter in your room? What is it that people don't understand about a counter? This makes no sense to me.
A room is a room, the big deal is my room has 2 windows, screen, 4 walls, with an electrical plug on 3 walls. Contempt for room prices is so high, that I believe the best way to provoke the world to think, to learn, to know, is to leave things unknown, and force cognitive dissonance to happen. For example, I did not know before Marcos Rented his 300 USD Casita that is was too stupid for words, mosquitoes, bugs, then in the afternoon because of a laminated roof, it was super hot, a truly uncomfortable room. Readers, viewers are 99 percent tracked, channeled to see cherry picked, heavily edited videos, and I believe this is un-ethical, And people only explaining the good. My room is lived in already for 2 weeks, I have adapted it to me. I hung a clothes line, I do no believe in beds being on frames, so I put the mattress on floor, installed tons of hooks with my cordless drill. I love the full length mirror inside. It is my dream that 1 in 50 can do the math, and know that the cost of a room should be about one-fourth the amount of money people make. The contempt before consideration is problem, keeps people addicted to advertising. I propose, i provoke on pricing, and quality of rooms, it has almost nothing to do with looking. The travelers nest is a collection of benefits, when a room has a screen on the window, and 3 electrical plugs, quiet, can convenient to transport, there is almost no more information needed. Any room rented by the month can be retrofitted, modified to make perfect, I have an extra 250 USD to plow into benefits. So this is room I can pay 250 per month in benefits if I want, I have an extra 250 for improvement, my goal is to help people live in their means, to know what are their needs, and not dazzle with pretty pictures. I believe being enigmatic makes for better pedagogy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedagogy
Andy, my comment wasn't regarding the video, as such--it referred to a single statement within it that drove me nuts: "It has a counter, but I'm not going to show it to you. People don't understand..."
That was the only part that confused me. Everything else made sense. And there is no reason for videos of the "this is my dresser, I keep my hair brush on it..." type, or any that, as you say, glamorize or distort the reality.
But that single statement stopped me cold, left me wondering what in the world there was to understand? What could be so magical, or tragic, or worth being secretive about a counter that you didn't want to show it? Enigmatic can be fine and useful, but only if, when the enigma is resolved, there is something to see. I do agree that for the most part, a room is just a room.
OK. I will make a video of it. OK, I understand, I will clean my granite counter, and shelves to show them, with why a hard granite counter top is a wonderful feature in a room. When we talk, there are tons of allusions to other ideas, and abroad, they never stop because this is different culture, 50 percent of items that take time to explain.
