Join Couchsurfing to see Alejandro’s full profile. It’s free!
My name is Alejandro! I am Mexican, living in the United States, I have been living in the United States the majority of my life. Spanish is my native tongue and English is the language I use every day. I'm interested in meeting people from different backgrounds and social groups. I am easy going and flexible in my travels, always up for adventure and exploring. I love music, art, sports, cycling, activism, history, justice and food! I am currently a contributor to Mashin Revista, a Men's fashion magazine in Mexico. I write of the many wonderful things that cycling offers.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I would love to meet local people that have stories or would like to share stories. I am not interested in resorts or nice hotels, but in the culture and the people that make beautiful cities beautiful. If the opportunity presents itself, I would love a host that could perhaps grab a beer with me but I would also be grateful for someone to offer me their floor to sleep on.
I'm interested in meeting people from different backgrounds and social groups. I love to travel and take part of what the locals do: the dive bars, the local art, the beautiful parks and even the rougher looking neighborhoods that often get the cold shoulder from tourists, yet have so much to offer. I love music, art, sports, cycling, activism, history, social justice, hiking, food (I'm a big foodie) and I love to cook!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I chased a bandit with an old lady's purse and was able to retrieve the purse and hand it back to the old sweet lady. Yes it was kinda like in the movies except that there weren't any cameras to capture the moment :P
Teach, Learn, Share
I would love to share my pictures, techniques, recipes, Spanish and i'm sure there is always random knowledge or talents we can exchange. Im an open book!
What I Can Share with Hosts
Mexican food is some of the most delicious food one can have, and I would love to whip you up a Mexican dish while listening to some good music and perhaps some wine or tequila.
