exchanging skills, languages, knowledge and stories while hosting in melbourne
i like other people, poetry, walking next to rivers, strange towns; talking politics over beer, improv theatre, wild travel stories, escaping from australia
Deontology; Nietzschean cynicism; lets all be wonderful to each other; don't eat animals; (red) wine/bacchanialism; direct action; the right questions over the right answers; people are fundamentally absurd but I like that

Teach, Learn, Share
I love meeting people who have experienced many cultures, and trading stories. Anyone who likes to have long chats about semantics+the philosophy of grammar or politics, and feminists.
I'd love to be able to share my skills (english lang., literature/books, programming, intermediate french and german, writing), with anyone who would be happy to share theirs- I'm really interested in gardening and growing my own vegetables, and living in a more sustainable way- as well as learning languages-
so these particularly would be cool.
But I think we all have important information that we can all contribute, that can help everyone in so many ways. People are cool like that.
I like meeting people who like sharing, basically! all sorts.
