About Me


some space available for World Cup


As you can see from my username, am a big jazz fan. I am proud of my country and even my city, and like to show people around, though most people avoid it like the plague! Am more the intellectual type than the party animal, though can have a great party every now and again. Like to try different things and meet new people, and, of course, to travel!


Don't take yourself too seriously.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted quite a few people, though not couchsurfed as yet. Hope that will change soon! Also enjoy all the social activities of the Gauteng (and Cape Town, when I am there) groups.


Have had my place turned into a backpackers from time to time.


Music, reading, good movies, travel... Can play a good game of chess.
