Hospitality is famously depicted in famous epics of The Odyssey and the Illiad. A common understanding of why hospitality was much more common back then it is now, is the effluxion of time and how we travel changed. Back them families might have traveled 10 miles back then on foot, and would be exhausted by the time they arrived. They deserved hospitality. 110 years ago 10 miles could be traveled on old bikes in 20 minutes. Nowadays, we can drive 10 miles in 10 minutes. Another reason of why people are less patient and want instant-gratification now more than ever.
