About Me

Unexpectedly I ended up living in the Middle East, to be specific in heart of Amman, eavesdropping to its lively pulse. I long for what I call a 'real country experience' which means trying to see multi-faceted nature of a place I am currently visiting or living in. It translates into wandering around some unpleasant places, that eventually turn out to be quite decent and nice. If you are interested in local food, Arabic markets - then here I am.
Besides I am a dance floor monster, so If I take to tequilla night on Tuesday don't expect me to sit and sip my beer.
Crazy about cooking - the best gift you hand me is your favourite recipe. It's even better if you decide to cook and I'll be happy to share with you my gourmet's interests :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I search for ideological clashes, new recipes, new approaches and inspiration. Besides I like having people at home.

Teach, Learn, Share

I tend to be a very busy person that's why I am not always available to show you around Amman the way I see it. I can provide you some info about Jordan, burning issues, local culture, food. Take you to the marker, guide where to buy natural oils, decent spices, take you dancing and cook for you. But only if I have time :)
