A MESSAGE TO SURFERS

Good day!

I've recently returned to Sacramento from working abroad in Australia. My brother and I have moved in together and renovated a lovely home just outside the city center. We would love to return the favor of so many couchsurfing hosts in the past. Our place features a music studio and beautiful outdoor garden. We're pretty cruisy folk, relaxed, and cooperative. Do message us if you happen to be passing through!

Cheers!

¡Che! ¿Que tal? Soy de California, estudié los facultades de ciencias ambientes y bosques al Universidad de California, Berkeley. Recién volví de trabajar en Australia y hice una casita con mi hermano acá en Sacramento. Queremos compartir con toda la comunidad vagabunda! Avisanos si estás cruzando Sacramento!

Chau!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Unlike AirBnB, hotels, hostels, renting, etc., Couchsurfing rejects the formation of monetary and service based relationships by encouraging its users to create meaningful, local friendships and share experiences, meals, and stories. This form of social reunion is reminiscent of several earlier human societies that prioritized community building for personal fulfillment, but also survival. Despite the integration of technology in our every day lives, it seems individuals are distancing themselves from one another. I find Couchsurfing one of few technological mediums capable of breaking down the xenophobia and racism of global capitalism by propagating a new social mode and way of being.

Interests

Languages! Accent! Expression! Recently Castilian, soon Farsi!
Music! I play and compose and love to listen.
Politics! Like to stay up to date on those powers deciding our lives.
Hegemony! Heteronormativity? Neo-liberalism? Neo-malthusianism? Neo-colonialism??!! You got it!
Spirituality and the plague of Nihilism! What are we? Why are we here? What is reality? They didn´t do all that yoga and meditation for nothing you know!
