One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

◎ Observe nature, plants and their power.
◎ See how amazing fatuity of man is.
◎ Learn mandarin, especially its writing that arouse my wonderment by its logic and singularity ~

Teach, Learn, Share

I answer fast to requests.
Don't send me any if you're likely to not confirm your stay.

● Can share my bedroom, 99% of chances you'll stay here if you write a short (2 to 15 lines), personnalised (read my profile), spirited (crack a joke) request that catch my interest.
● Declined requests :
More than 2 weeks in advance or long sentences about your life, your travels and copy/paste.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Learn French by playing games !!
Introduce you to mandarin and the local culture : )
Give you a kick in the ass if you need one
