Music, Movies, and Books

Well... last years didn't give me much chance to read a lot, but i like reading but only when it comes from my inner wishes.

I LOVED - Ensaio sobre a cegueira / Blindness - Saramago

And i am slowly making progress over 100 anos de soledad (100 years of solitude, maybe the translation i made is not the best one) - Garcia Marques

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw the world out of its equilibrium through a ordinary experiment in my chemical lab. I see the entropy being generated every second in my life.

I lived for 13 months in Europe (the netherlands), and had the oportunity to visit almost every single country in europe.
I lived for 2 months in NY and 4 months in LA.
I made a 2,5 months North America tour in Mex, US, CA.
I lived a summer in LAPLAND (24x7 lights on with almost 100 days with light and no nights between).
I made a 3000 km trip by motorcycle in FINLAND (my back never recovered from it)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am all about the exchange, I can teach, I can learn and I can share FREESTYLE. I know how to cook, how to speak some languages, I am into international music, Lots of traveling, Volunteering, ... (this would go too far)
