CURRENT MISSION: check out Chengdu
I'm a critical urbanist, researcher and beginner activist. I try to be serious about world but not about myself.
Cities is what interests me the most: as the subject matter of my research, my workplace, and my home. Occasional trekking and cycling in the countryside remains a pleasant exception from my urban life.
I just arrived to Chengdu to do some research about local transport. I don't know anyone here, so I'd like to host some people to discover this place together!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I surf, host, and surf again.

Definitely NOT in this order.
