Take pieces of different cultures to build my own puzzle.
I am a Uruguayan that came to live to Buenos Aires when I was only two. All my family or what's left of it, is from Uruguay but lives abroad. my cousins in Germany and my uncle used to live in Rome, now he got back to our native Montevideo.Buenos Aires is my home, where I spent my childhood playing Basketball at River Plate & Nautico Buchardo clubs. With my teams we travelled all over the country playing basketball and staying at the hometown kids's home. Then they would payback the visit to Buenos Aires stayin' at my home. Amazing experience to get to know diferent cultures and economic realities.Meanwhile I spent summers visiting uruguayan and brazilean beaches as well as Cordoba hills with those infinite roadtrips with my family Renault 4 and then the upgraded Renault 12 and later to Renault 18. When I finished high school I started working and studing in the U until they weren't compatible anymore. So I choose working because it allowed me to travel several times a year to Chile, Uruguay, Brasil, Southern Africa, the US and Europe. Hostels and family homes where I used to stay. Being a curious guy, I'am always interested in listening, viewing and talking about life, politics, culture, arts, etc.Yo soy un uruguayo que vino a vivir a Buenos Aires cuando tenia solo dos años. Toda mi familia o lo que queda de ella, es de Uruguay, pero vive en el extranjero. mis primos en Alemania y mi tio vivia en Roma, ahora regresaron a nuestra Montevideo natal.Buenos Aires es mi casa, donde pase mi infancia jugando al baloncesto en los clubes River Plate y Nautico Buchardo. Con mi equipo hemos viajado por todo el pais jugando al baloncesto y quedandome en casa de los chicos locales. Luego se devolveria la visita a Buenos Aires quedandose ellos en mi casa. Una experiencia increible para conocer las diferentes culturas y realidades economicas.Mientras tanto, me pasaba los veranos visitando las espectaculares playas uruguayas y brasileiras, asi como las sierras de Cordoba con los roadtrips familiares interminables con el Renault 4 y luego la nueva version del Renault 12 y Renault 18 break.Al terminar la secundaria empece a trabajar y estudiar hasta que fueron incompatibles. Asi que eligi trabajar porque me permitia viajar varias veces al a Chile, Uruguay, Brasil, Africa del Sur, los EE.UU. y Europa. Hoteles, albergues y casas de familia donde me quedaba.Ser un tipo curioso, me permite siempre interesarme, escuchar, ver y debatir acerca de la vida, politica, cultura, artes, etc My Travel Blogs
Even though I tend to be conservative, I have learned from mine's and other's experiences that every thing that you can do today, you shouldn't leave it for tomorrow. You never know what will happen afterwards.
