About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Looking forward to eat tatties and feijoada or drink leche-leche and amazing teas again

ABOUT ME

Answering that question gets me some very serious headache and a furious need to pinch my nose. It's like a philosophy exam for me. So I will wait, and observe the inside of my mind. And maybe answer.

PHILOSOPHY

I don't know who said this, but I'll repeat it: "Don't be a lake. Be a river".

***

"Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that, shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass."

- Ray Bradbury, "Fahrenheit 451"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I spread the word and the idea behind CS
I meet people through CS meetings and am doing some guided tour of my town

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Every encounter teaches me something. And changes something of me. We are the result of every encounter, innit?

Interests

Music, Books, knowing people... what can I say that dosen't is the same to everyone else? Sci-Fi is my religion? Or pastafarism, maybe?

Music, Movies & Books

Sf (I love most of the genre, really almost anything. The not-so-good, is at least loveable for the good laughs)
Bukowski, Palahniuk, Nin, Miller, Gutierrez

I'm bulimic when it comes to music *.*

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Losing myself in the Highlands.

Living in a real Auberge Espagnole.

Realizing that my thoughts and dreams just became reality, that one time in the British Library. *.*

Experiencing a true and crazy and amazing carnaval in Rio de Janeiro
