Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hope to meet, share experiences with, and learn from people. I just aim to be me and grow. I also offer to meet up with people and show them around.

-- Espero a conocer a, compartir experiencias con, y aprender de gente. Solo intento ser yo y crecer. Tambien ofrezco a cononer a gente y ensenyarles lugares.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have couchsurfed four or five cities in México and met with Couchsurfers in others places. I enjoyed sharing my culture with people and learning about theirs (particularly music!). It was great even to just meet other people with whom I was not even staying just because CSers tend to be cool and interesting. Yay COUCHSURFING, haha! -- He hecho Couchsurfing en tres o cuatros ciudades en México. Ha sido buenisimo. Me encanta compartir mi cultura con otros y aprender sobre las suyas (especialmente musica!). Ha sido bueno a conocer a otra gente con quien no me quedaba tambien porque los CS tipicamente son buena onda y interesante. Viva CS!

Teach, Learn, Share

Not judging a book by its cover is harder than many think. It is when you recognize your assumption, take a step back, and try to move forward anew that you can feel confident in making real progress toward being a better world citizen. Oh, I can also teach a little of English slang from the states and Spanish....and some philosophy. ----- Que no juzgar por las apariencias es màs difìcil que unos piensan. Es cuando reconozca tu suposiciòn, espera un ratito y intenta seguir de nuevo que se puede sentir con confianza que està haciendo progreso hacia siendo mejor ciudadano del mundo. O...y tambièn puedo enseñar un poco de yerga inglesa de los EEUU y español....y filosofìa.
