About Me


("busca experiencias")


I studied at the University of Buenos Aires, the race direction film, I think I am a quiet person who does crazy things, great sense of my life is to do what I really like, try to do other things, but it did not work, I think life passes by, I'm also very inquisitive, not intrusive, simply because I'm very curious, so I can speak English, portugues and a little German, I am interested in cultures and the lives of others. I think one life is not enough to know everything.
I am a good conversationalist but better listener.

I have great pleasure in helping other people, because when you travel always helped me, but also do it for me, (this may sound a little selfish) but with help, I know a place in heaven'm going to have :)
And surely I will have many stories to tell my grandchildren.

My sense of humor is very Argentine, the irony is present when I talk, maybe it's hard to explain but if we use the same humor we will probably understand better ;) ha!

estudié en la universidad de buenos aires, la carrera direccion de cine, pienso que soy una persona tranquila que hace cosas locas, el gran sentido de mi vida es poder hacer lo que realmente me gusta, intente hacer otras cosas, pero no me funcionó, creo que la vida pasa por ahí, tambien soy muy preguntón, no entrometido, por el simple hecho que soy muy curioso, por eso puedo hablar ingles, portuguez y un poco de aleman, me interesan las culturas y las vidas de otras personas. creo que una vida no alcanza para conocer todo, soy muy buen conversador pero mejor escuchador.

Siento gran placer en ayudar a otras gentes, porque cuando viaje siempre me ayudaron, pero tambien lo hago por mi, (puede sonar un poco egoista) pero haciendo ayudando,sé que un lugar en el cielo voy a tener :)
Y Seguramente tendre muchas historia para contar a mis nietos.

Mi sentido del humor es muy argentino,la ironia esta presente cuando hablo, quizas es difícil de explicar pero si usamos el mismo humor seguramente nos vamos a entender mejor ;) ja!


cuando emprendo un viaje, cargo mi mochila siempre se me dibuja este poema en mi mente, y me expresa lo que representa un viaje nuevo para mi.

The art of losing is not easy to master
so much impregnated with the intention perish
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accepts irritation
of lost door keys, the hour badly used.
The art of losing is not hard to master

After practice more loss, losing faster;
places, names and where you thought it was traveling.
None of this will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch and see! my last
or almost last three loved houses went.
The art of losing is not hard to master.

I lost two cities, were beautiful. And some worlds
longer I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it was a disaster.

Even losing you (the funny voice, a gesture
I love) I shall not have lied. It is clear
the art of losing is not hard to master
although it may look like (write it) a disaster.


El arte de perder no es facil de dominar
tantas cosas perecen impregnadas de la intencion
de ser perdidas, que su perdida no es desastre.

Pierde algo cada dia!. Acepta la irritacion
de las llaves perdidas...la hora mal usada.
El arte de perder no es dificil de dominar.

Después practica mas la perdida, perdiendo mas rapido;
lugares, nombres y dónde era que pensabas viajar.
Nada de esto traera el desastre.

Perdì el reloj de mi madre y ¡mira!! mis ultimas
o casi tres ultimas casas amadas se fueron.
El arte de perder no es dificil de dominar.

Perdi dos cuidades, eran hermosas. Y algunos mundos
más extensos que me pertenecian, dos rios, un continente.
Los extraño, pero no fue un desastre.

Hasta perdiendote a tí (la voz chistosa, un gesto
que amo) no habré mentido. Es evidente que el arte
de perder no es dificil de dominar aunque pueda parecer (escríbelo!) un desastre.

A real artist must take a full, interesting, varied life and exitante. must know not only what this one happening in the big cities, but also in the provincial cities, in the factories and in big cultural cities of the world. he must study the life and the psychology of the people who surrounds it and of several of other parts of the population so much it is your country as(like) abroad.
We need a wide point of life to interpret the works of our time and of many peoples(villages)... To reach the penínculo of the reputation, an actor must have more that his artistic talents, he must be a human ideal being ... capable of coming to the culminating points of your epoch, of understanding(including) the value of the culture in the life of your people(village) ... of reflecting the spiritual longings of your contemporary one

Un artista debe llevar una vida plena, interesante, variada y exitante. debe saber no unicamente lo que esta sucediendo en las grandes ciudades, sino tambien en las ciudades provinciales, en las fábricas y en los grandes ciudades culturales del mundo. Debe estudiar la vida y la psicologia de la gente que lo rodea y de varias de las otras partes de la poblacion tanto es su pais como en el extranjero.
Necesitamos un amplio punto de vida para interpretar las obras de nuestro tiempo y de muchos pueblos... Para alcanzar el penínculo de la fama, un actor debe tener mas que sus talentos artisticos, debe ser un ser humano ideal... capaz de llegar a los puntos culminantes de su época, de comprender el valor de la cultura en la vida de su pueblo... de reflejar los anhelos espirituales de su contemporaneo.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Accommodate travelers, or going to meetings,


we had a party with friends CS in a house that was demolished the next day, the Thematic Party girls was dressed as a man, men dressed as women, but the best was when the police arrived, I had to go outside to talk to them very seriously but with my blonde wig and my red dress. this is true, unfortunately.
