PHILOSOPHY

I am very familiar with the Tao / Zen-buddhism, I like zen-poetry, caligraphy and oriental philosophy. Freedom is more valuable as the comfort and money.

I WANT TO KNOW YOUR COUNTRY IN REAL and for it I need assistance of Asian, S.American @ Pacific Friends!

For this reason I also usually want to communicate with ordinary people, ...
therefore also prefer always on my travels if is possible to stay, take
accommodation in private, among native people ... away from the tourist
sectors / destinations which are everywhere commercionalized, impersonal and
instant. I do not travel due to relaxation but because of knowledge and new
experiences. So I am happy that we have established contact, as I hope you
may give us the best advise and recommend us what should be visible in your
country preferably....
