I write this blog about ecotourism because I have a big interest in this topic and I do think it can make a difference. I want to share what I find/think interesting about it.

2010 Winter Olympics, an eco-tourist experience??

We always have to be cautious with this kind of initiatives because sometimes it looks like a 19th century human zoo, but any effort aiming to promote fairly aboriginal cultures should be endorsed.
