About Me

CURRENT MISSION
I am very happy to host lovely/interesting people, please message me.有朋自远方来不亦乐乎

ABOUT ME

I like travelling, and seeing things and experiencing new things, and Im interested in the many different cultures,histories, books and people that there are. i like beer,wine,nice food.

PHILOSOPHY

i think its silly to limit your life because of any kind of bigotted world view...i generally enjoy disagreeing with moralisers from the catholic to communist end of the spectrums. I disagree heavily with democracy-obsessed believers in the righteousness of US imperialism and Western supremacists who think their un-informed view on China has value, I am not a fan of the CCP either but like to keep a balanced view when possible. I quite like Zhuangzi philosophy, perspectism, relativism, skepticism etc

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have 3 or 4 couches now,and floor space...half the year I live in the most beautiful bit of central Beijing. Opposite Confucius temple and Lama temple.

i try to keep an open house, and go to cs gatherings sometimes.

Music, Movies, and Books

FILMS: L'Auberge Espagnol...Slumdog Millionaire...casablanca...clockwork orange....poupee russe...jamon jamon....anything by almodovar and zhang yimou (red sorghum is great!)....THE BOAT THAT ROCKED/aka Good Morning England...anything really...to be honest, i like every film i watched recently unless it is a hollywood film, particularly i hate a film if it is a hollywood film about young up and coming professionals in New York who are trying to balance work and play....films by Zhang Yimou and Pedro Almodovar are great, most films have some value.

BOOKS&AUTHORS: f.scott.fitzgerald writes stunningly, indulgent books like world of suzy wong, and lost horizon are fun ...then I suppose in no particular order to specify some titles/authors: Tender is the Night...The Sun Also Rises...harry potter. Ding Ling, Zhang Ailing, Mu Shiying, Shen Congwen, Ling shuhua, Mark Kitto's bios.

MUSIC: BEBE,....Gustavo Lima...XU WEI.......Tribalistas...Friendly Fires...The Foals///LA ROUX....mgmt... RADIOHEAD...anything, mainly Radiohead...ZHOU XUAN

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

travelling around west china and tibet was nice, cumulative experiences of living in beijing,Madrid,Yangshuo,oxford is good...

Teach, Learn, Share

I suppose I have a vague cooking and house-cleaning ability-thats my way of asking to stay...

perhaps culture/language exchange while we are together, I enjoy discussing stuff sometimes...i could teach english -i did a TESOL course....and have taught more than 1000 hours worth of english classes, so i can teach u abit/
