Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I try to keep myself in contact with my local couchsurfing community
I try to host, assist or help as many fellow travelers as I can
Enjoy life, meet new people, see new places, see new things, eat delicious food, read more books, watch more films, listen to different music, learn from everyone.
Music, Movies, and Books
I enjoy all music genres. It depends on the ocassion; but I especially enjoy reggae (Old Bob, Peter Tosh, Toots & The Maytals), folk movement (Old Bob again), classic rock (their satanic majesties: Rolling Stones!), world music …
I enjoy and cherish cinema very much. It's one of the reasons of why I do what I do. Every visual work, whereas a short film, a movie, a documentary, anything made out on video, can work out as entertainment, art, complaint, worship, knowledge or culture (to say the least). Therefore, to pick a favorite is especially hard. I particularly enjoy documentaries, history based themes, horror, thrillers, westerns, and cinema verité. At home you'll get to know my movie collection, so if you're in the mood of watching a film during your stay, there are titles to choose from.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm open to any kind of conversation, and would love to hear about your culture and journeys, and be glad to share my own, even if few, experiences as a traveler.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'll be happy to ask you to join me on a walk or drive through the neighborhood in order to get to Bishopric Hill, a place in which a part of the Battle of Monterrey was fought in the year of 1846, during the Mexican - American War (1846 - 1848); it holds a museum with info not only about the battle, but of the whole history of the city of Monterrey.
