Barter transactions, that is, mutually non-monetary exchange, in this XXI century is becoming increasingly popular. In many cases, it is just reasonable and appropriate.

And immediately comes to mind Dracula. But still a little different. Organizers of the festival so wanted a little to solve the problem with the lack of blood supply.
