About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am listening what you've got to say.

ABOUT THE TOWN & WHAT PEOPLE DO FOR FUN

I grew up in South of Brazil in a town well known as "The city of many woman! Some other people would call Umuarama as "The city where friends get together".

There are many parties going on when graduate students are in town and there's always a reason to celebrate drinking some more, (whether you're hangover or not).
Just like most of the people in the South of Brazil they love BBQing and all that leftover meat has to be BBQed at some point. It is when is time to start collecting money from all participants in order to stop whatever you're doing and drive to the bar on the corner in order to purchase tons of ridiculous amounts of beer, ice cubes, coal, "cachaça" & lime for the traditional Brazilian cocktail called caipirinha".
It is super hot in the summer and besides alcoholic beverages and "Coca Cola" - Coke, people enjoy drinking Tererê. It is tea and it is made from a plant called Erva-mate which we add lots of ice cubes to it.

I lived and traveled in Brazil, the Estates, France, in the UK. Met so many interesting people and I've learned so much.
Now I am living and working in London, planning to travel some more - HEY OF COURSE! . Wishing a great year of 2016 for everyone. Safe travels!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I participate telling people how great CouchSurfing is and how great is the feeling of being WELCOMED, accepted and respected.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed so many times and went for coffee and BBQs at the park. Movies and special events... I had the opportunity to get to know travelers and locals. It's great to know what's going on in the city knowing you're never alone. There would be always a traveler in NY wanting to share a meal and get together. I should participate more often.

Interests

I love traveling, watching telly. Ilove pets, I love children, love the fauna and flora.
I love cycling and scootering in the city. My favorite food are Mexican, Italian and Brazilian.
Techno, reggae and rock'n'roll those are great choices but I also enjoy listening to samba, and MPB (Brazilian Pop Music).
