About Me

================== PLEASE READ FIRST ==================
If you want to surf my couch is better if you ask me 7-10 days before your arrival date, not 3 months in advance, as I don't plan my everyday life so much.
If I accept your request, I will give you my local phone number and offer to pick you up from Luxor downtown/train station or other well known place. Please, it helps alot if you have a local SIM card (Vodafone is preferred), as I normally don't have internet access on my phone and I will not call foreign numbers for obvious reasons.
Last minute requests are accepted, but handled day-by-day. Some times I can, some times I can't. If I know you are arriving I normally have time for clean my house, but last-minute surfers must have a flexible attitude in this topic, as having a clean house in Africa is quite a challenge ;-)

PHILOSOPHY: Life is just one... chase your dreams!
CURRENT MISSION: [trying to] Walk like an Egyptian!

I'm an Uruguayan (& Italian nationalized citizen) web developer and Egyptology student passionate with ancient Egypt since I was 8, and now living my life dream, merging my mind and body with one of the oldest cities in the world: Luxor.

Music, Movies, and Books

MUSIC:open mind but in love with metal (specially symphonic, pagan and similar kinds)

BOOKS: epic fantasy, Tolkien fan and obviously anything Egypt-related

MOVIES: science-fiction, space operas and historical movies are my favourites

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Survived the Egyptians revolutions 2011 & 2013 and built my own house in Egypt (twice)! Not bad, eh?

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you stuff about ancient Egypt (religion and mythology, hieroglyphs... you name it) and also about computers and web design (html, css, php, javascript...). Ah, y puedo también enseñarte español.

I would love to learn more about archaeology, cooking and whatever else you may willing to share... everything adds to the pool of knowledge!
