Update: I live in Xalapa Veracruz for the moment, not Mexico City.
I am simple, straight forward and pragmatic. I particularly enjoy beaches as most of you do, and on occasion cold climates as most of you don’t. So I grew up in Mexico City, I spent my college days in Boulder Colorado, then to Washington DC, and later San Francisco. I like to be active when I travel, with lot´s of cycling, sports, and trekking. I am saving my travels to those auspiciously comfortable destinations for when I am older, more decrepit, and vested in larger responsibilities, now is the time I belief to drink tea in places that are wild, where you can jump off mountains and land without too much sore.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
enjoy the cultural exchange always.
Met a few interesting peeps on this too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about ways in which I can defend myself against dangerous wildlife.
What if I do end up stranded one day in a survival situation?
But yea, I like the outdoors, and recently I´ve focused on long distance trail running of which I do a lot of in the mountains of Mexico.
I would like to say that I´m also good at fly fishing, but I´m not, I suck at it, any type of fishing, I´ve never really caught anything, except one time when I fished a "pez rana" in Veracruz (half fish half frog), it was the wierdest thing I had ever seen.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Once I wedged myself stuck in between a fence for two hours.
I was later charged with trespassing.

Whenever I curl up into a little ball of anxiety and I lose total faith in humanity, I remind myself of a coffee shop in San Francisco who specializes in vegan bacon lattes, and then remember that everything is going to be alright after all.
You see, vegan bacon subsitute is a metaphor for the most important principles of Zen philosophy, but we would have to meet up for one so I could tell you further.
