Join Couchsurfing to see Alexander’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a sociologist and a poet, trying to find my unique way to express the modern world in words and music.
Now I work as an English teacher in Kyiv and don't go anywhere. I've already visited 35 countries (which wasn't the aim actually).
I can host you for 1-2 days in Kyiv, if you're about my age and understand what comfort zone is:)
Also I'm a well known hitchhiker in Ukraine, and can help you with some tips about how it is in my country.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Meeting new people is the easiest way to discover different cultures all around the world and CS provides lots of advantages for that.
Usually I read sociological researches from all over the world, watch some festival movies and play different type of music.
Music, Movies, and Books
Balthazar, Tom Waits, Chinawoman, Elliott Smith, Joan Baez, Regina Spektor, Arctic Monkeys, Norah Jones, Zaz, Rey Charles, Johnny Cash.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
8-month hitchhiking trip to Asia.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can share some experience about working with a Harvard professor in Syberia,
travelling with Chinese mafia and other multicultural things, as well as tell some stories about Ukranian Youth and NGO-s.
Also can share and translate some nice examples of Ukrainian modern poetry.
And, of course, our traditional cousine:)
What I Can Share with Hosts
My buddist soul, my Ukrainian food,
and my open heart.
