About Me


Sou tão misteriosa que não me entendo.


I'm...someone you should meet : )


Let me think about that a little longer...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting wonderful people, people who really enrich my life.


I've traveled with couchsurfers, partied with couchsurfers, had coffee with them and even hosted one once!


I have a nerdy side that has me sitting in the corner of libraries devouring books about Bilingual Education and poststructuralism.

Then I have to shake all that off and hit the town, dance, jump along a beach somewhere.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like to use music to imagine I'm somewhere else or to inspire ideas, but I love music the most when it perfectly melds with the scenery, when it IS the scenery, like a Roda de Samba or a steel band yard or salsa in the streets by La Troja in Baranquilla, or a symphony orchestra in a grand building.

For me, the best books have beautiful language, fantastic stories, dense literature, maybe a little magic that makes me see everything in a new way...I love García Márquez. If it weren't for GGM, I probably wouldn't try so often to fit "tinieblas" and "muchedumbre" into the conversation all of the time.

And movies. Well, I like them. I don't watch many, though.
