Visiting grad schools
Hello! I am in the process of selecting a PhD program. I have been inactive for a couple of years but I'm glad to be back! I was living in DC and quit my job to travel solo through Asia. I love adventures, meeting people, writing about those people, taking many bad photos (hey who knows? Maybe one wold be good) And being an overall cultural geek. Now I am finally back in my lovely hometown of Bogota, ready to host lovely surfers!

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you Spanish/English/French. I know how to interpret dreams. I can teach you how to salsa dance!
I want to learn how to cook very, very well. Right now I survive, but certainly wish to know way more :)
