About Me

ABOUT ME

I speak my mind...tend to believe that still there are many good people around the world... I have been lucky enough to confirm my supposition... wherever I have travelled . and with all the people I have met on the way
I consider myself a good person. thanks to my parents.
I neither drink nor smoke.

my main shortcoming that you can notice is that .. I am really absent-minded.
I have a sister who is one year and half older that me.
and basically that its all..most details you will know if you want when you meet me

PHILOSOPHY

I think ... if you are a respectful,healthy and well intentioned person.. no matters where you are... you always are going to be welcomed.. god(or the destiny, as you prefer consider this concept) give back what you do to others .

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am going to create a good precedent

I can assure that internet could be could be a perfect way to connect with people you have not even met who share interests similar to your own and who you are unlikely to meet in your daily routine...

Interests

To learn languages.

Russian
Bahasa Indonesia
Persian
Japanese
portuguese (estou a me aperfeiçoar)

Recover my previous knowledge of the original language of Puebla city valley: NAHUATL.(And also promote its usage ;this is a long-term project)

and to learn all the other 6 languages and with the time also try to promote the usage of all the native languages spoken in my state: Tutunakú,Hñähnü, da'an davi, nguiva, Lhiimaqalhqama, ha shuta enima

I know many craftsmen within my state and nearby areas that despite producing great works they have the problem of no access to final consumers then I am starting to making concrete steps to help them to connect with final buyers.

To know all the great spots that my state and surrounding area can offer(we have lot of Ecotourism and cultural tourism potencial)
I used to play some musical intruments of the mexican folkclore..unfortunately I gave up.... I am now playing again some of them. The one I play more is Marimba.

I like to collect:
1.- Musical instruments.
2.-Maps in the official language of the countries.
2.-Hats.

Music, Movies & Books

popular ,traditional and folclorical musical genres from every corner of the world...all good musical genres...from son huasteco, Luk Thung to Marrabenta,ndombolo(and anything in the middle)..
some good books:
las enseñanzas de don juan,El laberinto de la soledad,Iracema,os sertões,La muerte de artemio cruz,Kars,benim adim Kırmızı.
