ABOUT ME

"You don't know me
Bet you'll never get to know me
You don't know me at all
Feel so lonely
The world is spinning round slowly
There's nothing you can show me
From behind the wall
Show me from behind the wall" - CAETANO VELOSO

I can say that i am an easy going guy, i love ART in general and music and cinema especially. I prefer traveling in places surrounded by nature than the big cities, but of course i love the cities as well. The Big ones and the small ones too ... the cities that have HISTORY.

PHILOSOPHY

"Why can't we roam this open country?
Oh, why can't we be what we wanna be?
We want to be free"

"I'll be always laughing like a clown
Won't someone help me?
Cause I've got to pick myself from off the ground
In this a concrete jungle,what do you got for me now.
Concrete jungle won't you let me be, now.
I said that life must be somewhere to be found
instead of concrete jungle, illusion,confusion"

"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it's just a part of it:
We've got to fulfill the book.
Won't you have to sing
This songs of freedom?
Cause all I ever had Redemption songs
These songs of freedom"

BOB MARLEY

Travel and know every little corner of the world. And know other cultures and people. And in this way know better our essence.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

"Leave it to me as I find a way to be
Consider me a satellite, forever orbiting
I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me
Guaranteed." - EDDIE VEDDER

I participate hosting and traveling. Changing massages. Helping people with my opinions, suggestions and tips. Trekking in the mountains, or walking in the streets.
Showing around.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

"I went to the big town
where there is a lot of sound
from the jungle to the city
looking for a bigger crowd
So I play my Bongo
for the people of this city
but they don´t go crazy
when I´m banging all my boogie
I´m the King of the Bongo" - MANU CHAO

Showing around every corner in RIO , going to every peak in Rio`s Mountains. Going in events and meetings. Traveling a lot in USA and Venezuela and Brasil. And of course talking about music, and art in general.
