About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn how to dance balkan folk!

ABOUT ME

I'm restless and outgoing, but also sentimental and thoughtful. I lost my faith in humanity, but I still believe in people! If you don't know me maybe you can think that I'm a bit estrange, but rigjt now to feign normality isn't my priority.
I apreciate a stimulting talk. I like to talk with people that don't feel attacked when you think different. I love that people because they enlarge my little world.
Often I feel the urgent need to follow my deepest feelings without time for questions, so you can find me completely alone climbing a rock wall in Pyrenees or with my backpack trying to cross ex-Yugoslavia, and if you do it just enjoy it with me, don't ask me WHY, this word brokes the spell, I don't need reasons to be happy.
I need adrenaline running on my body, meet my friends in the worst bar of the city and go to the ben when the sun is shinning. But I love my books, my couch, some grey days behind my window, and to be alone thinking about all my stupid things. This is me.

PHILOSOPHY

Life iis strange.That is the first point in my phylosofy, and may be the only thing I'm sure about.

Mystery of life excites me, and I try to find the answers in every little detail, in every fleeting experience, in every eyes I see. Normally I find more new questions than answers, but following that tracks I do my way. I ignore if it has some finish, I just try to enjoy it.

All we can live, all knowledge we can adcquire, all about our individual person is dommed to oblvion, so we have no choice, just experiment the only point in timeline has a effective reality; present.

I like psychoanalysis, existentialism, marxism, anarchism, buddhism-hinduism, etc.

Interests

Climbing, travel, yoga, phylosophy, literature, cook, vegetarianism, gardening and plants, etc.

Music, Movies & Books

Books and Poetry are a important part of my life; books are my refuge when I need to be alone, when I'm in the search of my self, or conversely when I need to transced the frontiers of my limited individual conception of all. And poetry saved my life a few times...

I love classics.

Kafka, Bukowski, Hesse, Dovlatov, Kerouac, Plato, Cortazar, Sabato, and a few modern writers like Auster or Murakami.

I have no TV, but watch some movies/serials/documentals on the computer.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

To born. I still think about it and is so strange...

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to cook, so I will do it for my hosts. South american and catala dishes are my speciallity! I can tell strange and senseless stories, Pablo Neruda's poems, chileni-argentinean gags, etc, and if you have some electrical problem at home I'm your man! (I'm 220v friendly, but 110v don't scares me!) I can teach you too how to dance Rumba, and I can try to find the sexual meanings of yours dreams, and (when it's possible) an additional Junguian interpretation for free :P

For my couchsurfers I can prepare a massterclass about "Castells" (catalan human towers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castell), correct ways to find figures in clouds, and (this is really important) how to fool thieves in Barcelona's subway.
