About Me

Not much to say .. I am a normal person who enjoys meeting new people, helping everyone who needs it and trying to be a good person every day, plus I'm loving the music, film and readings .. So anything that has to do with learning of these issues where it was, I would love. I will always be happy to meet new people

No hay mucho que decir... Soy una persona normal quien disfruta conocer gente todos los días, ayudar a todo aquel que lo necesite y tratar de ser una buena persona todos los días, ademas amo la música, el cine, las lecturas... así que cualquier cosa que tenga que ver con el aprendizaje de eso, me encantaría. Siempre estaré feliz de conocer nuevas personas.


I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant.
Creo que es mejor decir la verdad que una mentira. Creo que es mejor ser libre a ser un esclavo. Y creo que es mejor saber que ser ignorante.
H.L. Mencken

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My mother always says, that everything I do for someone else, someday, will return to me. She's right!. All my experiences in CouchSurfing are the way, to see this in the real life. So, I help far as I can, because someday someone will do it for me. I was a volunteer in CouchSuring (Community Builder), helping with the translations, fixing locations database, answering questions, and lately as CS Ambassador.

Mi madre siempre dice, que todo lo que yo haga por alguien mas, algún día se me devolverá¡. Todas mis experiencias en CouchSurfing son la forma de ver esto en la vida real. Por eso ayudo cuanto puedo, porque algún momento alguien hará¡ lo mismo por mi. Fui voluntario de CouchSurfin (Community Builder), ayudando a las traducciones, reparando la base de datos de ubicaciones, respondiendo preguntas, y ultimamente como Embajador de CS.


I love learn about World Music (where my surfers are), talk about films, walk, taste all kind of food, know about other cultures and their lenguages.

Me Gusta mucho aprender sobre música del mundo (de donde son mis surfers), hablar sobre películas, caminar, probar todo tipo de comida, conocer sobre otras culturas y sus idiomas.

Music, Movies, and Books

Sci-fi movies, auteur movies like Kubrick, Jarmusch, Jeunet, etc; historical movies. About the music, i listen a little of everything, but I prefer jazz, blues, rock (in almost all types), classical, etc.. Books: classic literature, sci-fi, crime novels, comics.

Teach, Learn, Share

What can i teach? .. Cocina autoctona, maps, camping, something of music, movies, spanish (obviously),even a bit of origami.
