Join Couchsurfing to see Pepe’s full profile.
Hi, Pepe here. Brazilian living in San Francisco, California. Curious, and always open to new cultures and new experiences. Eager to learn more and see the world from different perspectives. I get along very well with most people. I've lived in different societies and cultures and I always enjoy understanding different points of view. I've lived in five countries and I love making long trips when I go to different places because it makes me feel more connected to the place - a fake local.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Couchsurfing allows people to understand other people's mindsets and create a more tolerant world. I was raised being told that I shouldn't trust strangers or be naive. During my trips, I found very interesting, kind, tolerant people that I got to meet and that helped through my experiences.
Couchsurfing is more than just about letting someone stay in your place for a time. It's about trading experiences and being able to learn and teach things that are so valuable to create a better environment and society.
I love reading, traveling, studying languages, and going out with my friends. I also have a passion for meeting new people and listening to their stories. For sports, I enjoy running and swimming a lot. But good hiking or being in open spaces with contact with nature always catches my attention.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I don`t qualify them as amazing, but I`ve worked in NGO, orphanages and public schools in social projects during my school breaks in Peru and Argentina. It always feels nice to do something good and help other, while you`re delevoping yourself into a better, more humble human being.
Teach, Learn, Share
I love teaching languages and learning them as well. I can speak three of them (German next) and I want to learn more. It is one way of seeing the world from a different perspective. I can teach and show people how to live in a more positive way. I'm very optimistic and I always fight for what I want.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can show you more about the local life, instead of just the tourist stuff. I guess that's what you'll take with you after your trip. I`m very grateful for the times that I got to get hosted by some amazing families and I want to give it back to my hosts.
