About Me


To learn Hindi, to read all books from Biblioteca Cervantes and to learn as much as possible about India.


I truly believe a better world is possible, I believe in peace. There are 2 things I really hate: violence (any kind) and getting up early. I love reading, traveling, writing, walking. I love to teach, and I´d like to do that for many years (specially Literature). I can´t stay in one place for more than a year. Love the cold weather, coffe, poetry, silence, snow...


"There's no way to peace; peace is the way"

M. Gandhi

"The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind"

Bob Dylan

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS is one of the greatest things I´ve participated in. It takes a lot of trust to host and be hosted, and this is all about trust!


So far, my CS experiences have been great. I´ve met awesome people, and I moved from México to Poland because of a friends from CS that convinced me to come here.


Literature. Traveling. Movies. Poetry. Music. I love to talk about books and movies, going to book stores, sitting in a park and watch, drink coffee, play the guitar.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

For a hot-weather guy like me, the most amazing thing I´ve experienced is the winter in Minnesota, -40 degrees!!! And I loved it!! Too bad winter doesn´t last all year.
