About Me


Learning Mandarin!


I am a person who does not appreciate jokes that discriminate people.
We have to realize that jokes are a powerful medium to miseducate, especially the children.
When a child hears an adult crack jokes about a certain person - his or her nationality, color, religion, gender, his or her sexual option or physical attribute- the child will think that it's okay to laugh at the expense of others. But it is not!


**There is no scientific reason to believe we'll be alive tomorrow!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A long time ago my son knew it and he thought: This a thing that my dead will like. He was right, and I'm still here.


I've hosted many beautiful people and I was twice guested by Lily, from LA. I've been in many CS meetings and farewells.


I like music, movies, nature (specially birds), hiking and friendships. I'm a member of the Free Software and Free Knowledge movements, and obviously, I like all kind of freedom.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't like most of the American movies, mainly because of the violence. Now I am having contact with Chinese movies and I'm liking very much.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Portuguese language, Birdwatching, Geology, Mineralogy. I can tell you all about Earth's history and show you interesting geological sites in Rio de Janeiro. At least I can teach you how to prepare a tasteful Brazilian drink called caipirinha.
