Immersion in Rio de Janeiro
I am a geographer in training. Previously I wanted to be a paleontologist, photographer, computer programmer, and mechanical engineer lol. I was born in a rural area, read a lot of books and started travelling when I was in high school (Mexico). I taught English in Sao Paulo, studied abroad in Portugal, and studied Portuguese in Rio.
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have been to a number of CS events in Rio and Salvador.
I like to hike trails and check out the view.
Hiking and ecotourism, working on my Portuguese, cooking spicy food (because its hard to find in Brazil).
Music, Movies, and Books
Blues, Noise, Rock, eclectic latin like manu chao and tribalistas, House (deep, tribal, latin blends, I really like horns for some reason) trip hop, and some female vocalists of various genres.
