About Me

Hey everyone!!!

I'm an easygoing person that love parties and going out for a drink or coffee. I know everything about Lima and Peru (I travel a lot... really a lot hehe) so I can help you with info about travelling around them or about living here if you want to stay.

I enjoy travelling and meet new people and customs from everywhere I go. I also like movies, capture moments with my camera, going out, dance and learn new languages, a bit of everything is always good in life... :)

PHILOSOPHY

"La vida tal vez no sea la fiesta que esperábamos pero mientras estemos acá solo nos queda bailar" Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.Everything I've done is half of the story, the other half has been made for the people I've shared those things with. (this is your password, copy and paste it in your message)El corazón actúa por los motivos que la razón nunca entenderá.Life is not black and white... It is all varying shades of gray :)Esta frase me encanta y la tengo conmigo en un cuadro hace algunos años: "La memoria guardará en mi lo que valga la pena. La memoria sabe de mi mas que yo y ella no pierde lo que merece ser salvado". Eduardo GaleanoEsa frase resume mi "filosofía personal" si es que realmente puede llamarse así, la memoria solo guarda aquellos recuerdos buenos, que le dan sentido a la vida o que hacen que brote una sonrisa al pensar en ellos, finalmente no hay malos recuerdos, solo malas experiencias que a su vez dejaron algo bueno que recordar en el camino.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Now I'm a freelancer, so I can manage better my time and my couch is more available than before. As I don't have a lot of space (just a couch in the living room area) is better that is asked only when it's strictly necessary, please if you don't find couch write me, but it's only a last minute couch or really in advance.

I had a great experience in Buenos Aires, met lots of CSers there and also took part in many conversations about the CS purpose and project meaning... In Peru I met amazing people, mostly of them are now my friends. I'm sure to tell that 2009 was a good year as CS made me know more about me, what I need and what I can offer to life better than anything else in the world but 2010... was all about fun and parties ;) I was absent during 2011 and 2012, but I'm back since 2013!
