In an apartment complex in Tunis, eighty-year-old Tahar lives. He has led an adventurous life and has seen a lot of the world. After his retirement, he settled down in his native country, where he adheres to one golden rule: only take what you need and give away what you can miss. This is perfectly attuned to online hospitality platform Couchsurfing. Tahar offers guests a free place to sleep and shows them the real Tunisia.
