About Me

Proudly Fully vaccinated with Astra Zeneca!

BEFORE ANYTHING

Some of you want to do the "Peyote Ritual" here in Mexico, but just let me tell you that is a ENDANGERED specie and is under protection. ( http://oldredlist.iucnredlist.org/details/151962/0 )

A fast FAQ about the "Peyote"

-Why is endangered?
The heavy harvest for consumption of this plant and the cleaning of fields for farming is causing that the population of peyote becomes something to worry about.

-Is fault of the farmers?
is part of the problem, also consumption, is like eating turtle meat and blame the hotels that get in the beach for the problem.

-The huichol consume it, why they can do it and not me?
There are around 40,000 huichols.... and I doubt you are a huichol

-If you cut it in certain way it grows up again?
No, They say that cutting only the top and leave the roots will make it grow again, thats false, its much more complex that that, talk with a botanist about that (Im not a botanist so Im just giving you back the info a botanist give to me)

-There are Peyote farms?
mmmm, tought question, could be, is illegal so it would be dificult to have a "peyote farm", maybe, but the most probable thing is that no.

and last but not least a fast article

LET ME GET STARTED ABOUT ME

Hello! well, a lot fo things to say here are cliche but, well at least Im starting by something
that has something to say, personally I think the world is wonderfull and that always good things will happen, if it is not now is later.

I like new projects and to move around, I cant stay still for too much time.

Im a kind of bookaholic I love books, but i love more CiFic books or space opera, almsot anything with a "nebula" award

I like the PC games and a good beach with waves, to camp and bars, I enjoy to drive and to go anywhere driving.

PHILOSOPHY

carpe diem? but, a little mor far away, remember the past, enjoy the present, prepare the future

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

im living in Mexico right now, I learned by a german guy in beijing that the coushsurfing existed and I love the way is done.

Later I started to involve my self more in the activities from CS and now im proud to say I was part of the team that made the first CS National Meeting Mexico

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have found really amazing people in CS and part of what I like of the community is that there is always someone that will teach me something and will be amazing. (In fact I meet my evil twin in a CS national meeting... wait, or maybe I am the evil twin... muahahaha)

Interests

Reading, writting, travel, Stories, drink a couple of beers in a nice bar, new ways of thinking, visit new places,

Music, Movies, and Books

well, all that depends on the moment, im not really sure of what I like, maybe today jazz tomorrow indi and in the weekend pop music.

Reading, anything that falls in my hands, but right now my favorite novel is "The name of th Wind" from Patrick Rothfuss, and im reading some of the "all time classics"
