Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm all about its gist: travel, meet and experience.

→ Books: National literature and Psychology Essays (mostly Oliver Sacks).

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach some Portuguese or cultural traits of my region, some vegetarian recipes, dance moves from the northeast, human body tricks (...)
I'd love to learn about visual arts, architecture, languages, psychology and Behaviorism, mass behavior and social movements, (that list is nearly endless)
I can share books I have, my ideas, some memories, my space and my appliances, my food (...).
