About Me

I really like the next quote, hope it says something about me.

"Scientists say we are made of atoms, but some little bird told me we are made of stories" E. Galeano. (Los científicos dicen que estamos hechos de átomos, pero a mí un pajarito me contó que estamos hechos de historias)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The main reason is because i like the alternative way of traveling and meeting people that CS offers, compared with the more touristic and consumeristic way of doing that. There are so many interesting people around the world from whom I can learn something, and CS works is a like a bridge to reach them.


These are some of the activities that i really enjoy:

definitely meeting new people, also photographing, cooking, traveling (specially by bike, which i try use it every time and everywhere), flying kites, hiking and swimming. Also like books, TV shows and movies, coffee or beer with friends.

Hobbies: read about different countries, hear and tell tales from other cultures, sunset and sunrise watching, and folk music

Music, Movies, and Books

I like every kind of music, with the exception of regaetton. Pink Floyd, Manu Chao, Queen and Rock en tu idioma (Latinamerican Rock) are among my favourites.

I like almost any kind of literature, mainly historical novel, but White Nights (Dostoyevski) and 100 years of Solitude (Garcia Marquez) are probably my best. Also I read all the books of Game of Thrones, and definitely suggest to read them and to avoid the TV series, they are not comparable with the books.

I could not remember if one of my favorites movies is Memento, because I have a very bad memory.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."
R. Batty.

I've loved. That's the most amazing one, for sure.

Teach, Learn, Share

Mexican recipes and tales. Any local recipe given will be really appreciated.
Some time ago i built a greenhouse on my roof, and grew hydroponic vegetables. If interested, i can give some hints, info and even can help to start up with something.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Some coffee, bar hoping and small trips (on weekends). Also I have a second bike which can be used, it's easier and faster to move by bike in Helsinki area (unless during winter). We can use the sauna in my building every Friday night, and also we can make some kind of fusion cuisine, mixing everyone's ideas and ingredients and see what happen.
