I'm originally from Zimbabwe, but had the incredible luck to end up living and studying in Barcelona. I have a passion for languages and this year i'm taking an intensive spanish language and culture course in the hope that I will be able to stay in Barcelona and build a life for myself in this most vibrant and colourful city.
Im an easy-going optimistic person, always up for some adventure and fun and not always thinking things through. Above all i love meeting people - there is a special magical in meeting random and fascinating people. I am also extremely passionate about world music cultures and hope to one day promote the beautiful and forgotten heritage of the less commercial and less developed countries.
live every day as if it were the first - with innocence, curiosity and a smile
Music - world music, especially more ethnic and traditional music.
Wandering around old cities and supporting street musicians...visiting tiny villages and chatting with people passing by.
Good books, especially biographies, about social issues, or set in medieval times.
Striving to embrace my own freedom of thought and action so as not to become sucked into spirals of expectation.
Working towards having a greater impact somehow and helping people who may not be able to help themselves or are unable to fight the harsh economic and social class issues of today.
Music, Movies, and Books
movies: amelie, la bella vita, gomorrah, lord of the rings, motorcycle diaries
music: buena vista!! chiwoniso, cabo verde...flamenco, bossa nova, salsa, oriental music especially from India and Turkey, celtic music, world music in general..Idan raichel, Ceu. Jazz, funk.
books: too difficult. I tend to have phases in my life...i started out with all the classics like Little Women, Anne of Green Gables etc and then I went through my enchantment phase with various versions of King Arthur, Lord of the Rings, Excalibur, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Robert Jordan and the Wheel of Time. Now I have branched out. I enjoyed the Outsider, Mukiwa, and Chronicles of a Death Foretold.
In fact, I loved Gabriel Garcia Marquez and am longing to read 100 Nights of Solitude...poetry of Szymborska, Pablo Neruda
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I went to a Peach March in the city near me a few weeks ago. One of my forever memories. The feeling of tuning into the feelings of everyone around you can be overwhelming and at the same time warm and comforting. There was a band at the march - a band playing brazilian rhythms. Amazing how the power of a beat can magnify and add to an experience.
