About Me


Be the change you want to see in the world! (M.G.)


well...about me...I am a very lively person who like to be with other people for having fun together, or having nice and interesting conversations or even it is just spend some time doing nothing special!

My passion is dancing Forro, but also Salsa and other latin style dances, , or all other nice dance music ;;) ..I also love try new dishes, if it is at home by cooking or trying new restaurants...mmmhhh...nice food takes a big role in my life ;)

Besides this when I have enough time I like to chill at home and just reading books, drink coffee and eat chocolate =) That´s how a nice sunday should be =)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted one time a couchsurfer but my couch is very often used from friends or friends of my roomies =)so my couch is always available for EVERYONE :)

Unfortunately, my housing situation now does not allow me to host people but I am most welcome to meet and to show you around Bamako or Nouakchott, depending where I am ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach Forro altough I am not a teacher...;)
but actually I don´t teach something special but I think that in case of getting to know other people and to share with them our different ways of thinking and lives we always can learn from each other or at least share our opinions....
