About Me

CURRENT MISSION

For the moment, to buy a nice courtine for the windows of my kitchen.

ABOUT ME

Soy un físico que hace unos años se fue a vivir a Brasil a iniciar un proyecto nuevo. Dedico la mayor parte de mi tiempo a la investigación (en matemática biológica), amo a mis amigos y a mi trabajo con todo mi corazón, me gusta tocar la guitarra (folclore, tango, ahora también algunos ritmos brasileras), nado bastante, bailo algo de tango y forró. Y por si con eso no alcanza, también me esfuerzo mucho en la cocina cuando hay visitas (¿dato irrelevante? Puede ser. Pero te lo tomarías bastante en serio si probaras mi pastel de papa).

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love to host people at my place. Besides, I use to attend to the meetings organized by the community of Bs. As., specially the campings in Tigre, Tandil, etc. In fact, it was the magical experience of the first week-end in Tigre some yaer ago that made me get into this initiative.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Before joining CS, I hosted Mathiew from Montreal and Electra from Athenas, who where already members of the project. Two months later I was hosted by Ariana in Berlin, and afterwards I received Tim (Atlanta), Inka (Frankfurt), Robert (Vancouver), Elisabeth (Saafeld), Anne (Lille), and Mari (New York). Recentely I surfed by Carlos at Córdoba, Argentine. That's all for the moment.

Interests

When I travel: people, language, history and food of the place that I'm visiting.
Once I'm back: teaching at the University, swimmin, playing guitar (tango & chacarera), cooking meat-empanadas, feeding my cat, reading,...

Music, Movies & Books

A Confederacy of Dunces (J.K. Toole), Pantaleón y las visitadoras (M. Vargas Llosa), El Varón Rampante (I. Calvino).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Una vuelta que mi gata desapareció por la ventana, emprendí una investigación intensiva de ocho días para rastrearla. Toqué el timbre de todos los vecinos de la manzana, ofrecí cuantiosas recompensas, puse avisos en las gacetillas del barrio, contacté a la interpol, y cuando ya todo parecía perdido, la encontré!
También hice un viaje en tren de 59 horas, 47 minutos, y 23 segundos lleno de
incidentes . Desde esquel hasta Buenos Aires. Es largo, después te cuento mejor.

Teach, Learn, Share

I was teaching physics for the last 10 years Besides, as I am very interested in languages, I enjoy very much helping my foreign friends with Spanish.
I also studied two and a half years of Medicine, but already forgot the names of the 14 branches of the internal carotid artery.
