About Me

Not gazing at my open fridge!

I'm like Cpt. Jack Sparrow.

The little green man is watching us, making a study of us.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm nice and I offer a couch in a separate place. I share health food and cooking tips. I don't say I'm a nudist offering an emergency couch to desperate couch surfers waiting in a hostel lobby for a response to their 10 requests late in the evening after a long bus ride where they could not purchase food because no one accepted credit cards or spoke english, everywhere is fully booked and they're scared the host might leave them a bad reference.

See references.
