About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet people, put my feet in the whole world, enjoy life as much as I can ...

ABOUT ME

Easy-going and friendly guy, some people say I'm kind of crazy, but I say I enjoy living this life in this world and in my own world. Love making new friends, from any country, from any region, any religion, any color, any language, there's always a good way to communicate and become hypertranscending people ;).

PHILOSOPHY

Live because life is today, as if there were no tomorrow, live this day to the maximum, the past is gone, the future isn't here yet, the present is now!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I belong to another travelers' organization as well, and what I wanna do is helping and doing friends, and be helped when I might need it. "For there are not strangers, only friends yet to meet".
IMPORTANT: PLEASE if you want to stay at my place, I'll be happy to host you (95% of the time it is possible for me) but do NOT send multiple requests! It's quite frustrating to arrange things for someone to come and to read after that 'Sorry, I already found a host'. Gracias por la atención.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Amazing people from Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Poland, Switzerland, knowing a bit of their culture, the same for Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Peru or even Mexico itself! People sharing their point of view, culture, ideas... having the same on HospitalityClub... I just love this !! =)

Interests

Languages, travelling, cultures of the world, people, math, quantum physics, a new political system in the world and sometimes playing videogames. Of course showing you around my city is a priority for me as well!

Music, Movies & Books

Rock: Grunge, a bit of metal, a bit of punk, alternative, progressive, mainly rock!! But my favorite band is a French folk-rock band called Merzhin... Muse and Pearl Jam are as well. Mexican bands: Real de Catorce, Café Tacuba, Molotov, the powerful "Avanzada Regia" (a music movement as important in Mexico as the Grunge was in the early 90s) and Nortec Collective (Viva Tijuana!!).

Movies: Lord of the Rings saga, Italian cinema, some German films and Mexican like "Hecho en México". And the classic and unforgettable: Trainspotting.

Books: Silmarillion is my #1 book, further J.R.R. Tolkien literature, "Das Parfum" by P.Süskind, "O homem duplicado" by Saramago, "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain, "Cien años de soledad" by García Márquez and "Calculus" by J. Stewart (yes, I am a math freak).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I traveled around Germany, Czech Republic, Belgium, France and a bit of Netherland doing hitchhiking, I paid not as single Euro of trains, buses or airplanes ;) also through my whole country I've been traveling a lot, can give you advice of lots of places. I am a proud Mexican in love with the whole world.

Finally (and most recently) I also fulfilled one of my biggest dreams: road-tripping in USA, the whole southwest, from Lousiana and its lovely swamps (New Orleans) and Texas plains in Dallas-Fort Worth through the amazing desert and colors in New Mexico and Arizona, crossing the crazy Nevada (Las Vegas) up to California and the ocean, an amazing thing to do. More than 5400 kms!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you a perfect Spanish.
Some math.
Some crazy ideas I've got about space-time distorsions.
Some poetry I use to create both in Spanish and English.
I can show you my world.
:)
