About Me


I'm living in Rio de Janeiro for a while


Hi guys,

I'm Orlando Saavedra and I'm from Bogota Colombia. I just wanna learn everything I can... so I will join you for food, drinks, coffee, sports, just hang around, movies and, of course, parties.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I have been involve in some CS Mettings and host a few surfers.


It is really nice to live at least one day like a city resident... you can actually see another point of view of the places; that's why I like the CS Experience.
