Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I travel and I host, and I goto CS events when Im in a new city, and sometimes here in LA too!
Hosted a bit, Traveled a bit. Been to a few events. Highly recommend it all. Time of my life!
I love to dance: salsa, rumba, meregue, samba, bachata, forro, kizomba, and more. I go out dancing and to lots of shows. I love the beach and try to go swim in the ocean at least 1 time per week. I like going out with friends to house parties. I love great food and I go out to new restaurants all of the time (there are soooo many restaurants in los angeles), but I also love to cook. I like wineries and breweries (cheap wine and beer! whats not to like?) I love nature, and I go out hiking and like to picnic in the park, especially when the sun is going down. During the summer there is shakespeare in the park here and I like that too. I workout at the gym a bunch and teach group fitness classes in downtown and hollywood. You can come to a class if you want. When I am by myself, I like to make music, journal, write poetry (for my eyes only) and watch british quiz shows.

Being apart of organizing a 10,000 person march against Walmart, stopping them from coming into Chinatown, Los Angeles.
