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.

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).
