About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Helping anybody to enjoy my home town, Bogotá !!!

ABOUT ME

I am an Anthropologist from Colombia. What that means? I don't know, but: I don't dig up dinosaur bones (unfortunately) and I have never lived in the middle of the Amazon Basin (I wish I would!). And Colombia? one of the most trilling, passionate, beautifull and complex places I've ever been. I am currently waiting for my next deployment with the International Red Cross. I love reading, traveling, learning languages, getting lost while walking in no particular direction and riding my bike. The rest seems to be exploration, creativity, and a constant and never ending quest for my self.

PHILOSOPHY

I will take this borrowed (and modify it):

I don'€™t believe in Islam; I don'€™t believe in Buddhism; I don'€™t believe in Hinduism; I like Jesus' parables, but I don'€™t believe him to be the son of god but an enlightened person.

I believe in compassion, I believe in empathy, I believe in love, in art, in nature and smiles. in justice, in social memory, in truth, I know humanity has its flaws but I still believe in it, because I believe we can still change it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Since I don't have a place of my own I can not have guests. :( But I'll be very happy to hang out with anyone who is coming into the city!!!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am very new here! but i am very glad about joining the community!

Interests

Anthropology, social sciences, history, cultural diversity, humanitarian work, languages, literature, art, theater, (just as a reader and spectator), hiking, biking, dancing, partying, and incoherent conversations on multiple simultaneous unrelated topics ;)

Music, Movies & Books

60s, 70s rock & Roll, Pink floyd, Pearl jam, tango, salsa, classical music, jazz... and anything I have never heard before!!!

always looking for unexpected passions and awakenings in new books, however, I always find myself returning to: Camus, Beckett, Borges, Poe, Joyce, Dostoievsky, Chekhov, Kafka, kadare, Sábato, Neruda...

Perhaps also Hesse, Kundera, Wilde...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I lived in the highlands of Peru for two months and every morning I was fascinated by the closeness of the icy titans (Huandoy and Huascaran) and every single night I was amazed by the magnificence of the milky-way outlined in the dark sky.

My personal piece of advice: Go and get lost in Latin America!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you how to create this amazing "Ojos the Dios" I have worked in for some years with a beloved friend. http://www.facebook.com/sikulitejidos?fref=ts

I know some juggling, and I will be very glad to teach Spanish. ;) And I know the names, position and function of all the bones in the human skeleton :P
