About Me

CURRENT MISSION

get to know as many subcultures through CSing

ABOUT ME

I love life and enjoy being with others that do as well. I always find a bright side to everything even if all things fail and find content in the simplest things in life. My friends will consider me as spontaneous, sarcastic, goofy, and caring. I'm a native of Miami, my parents moved here from Peru when I was 2year of age and grew up here ever since. Know a few Peruvian dishes and will definitely share the recipes with you. I'm a huge food enthusiast, willing to try anything from any part of the world. I am also really active, restless to say the least, name any activity and I'm up for it, ultimate frisbee, running, mountain biking, or even rock climbing, if i could do all them in a day I'll do it, just time constraints sucks. blah. So rest assure, if you come by to surf my couch you will break a sweat. sorry. As a scientist, my mind wanders and drifts about random phenomena's in this universe, if you enjoy deep intellectual talks with a glass of wine and a cigar, will you marry me. nah, jk. hehehe. When traveling, I'm low impact and you won't notice my presence unless you want me to, when hosting, I let you be and I'll help you out as much as possible in miami.

PHILOSOPHY

don't frown, you will get an ugly wrinkle on your forehead when you get old.

Its all good

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I enjoy taking visitors out into town and showing them around beautiful miami and explaining to them the culture. I will also like to know about other cultures out there, i feel I am quite ignorant when i speak with some CSers that have been around the world, I will like to be well traveled as some of those that I have come across. As well as getting to know you for who you are and what you do.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I love sleeping on my sisters couch when I visit. I much rather sleep on the couch than on my bed. I love getting to know new people and their culture. I have come across many cultures, and found out how ignorant, and close-minded I was about the world. The more I host, the more i learn from different parts of the world. There so many beautiful people out there with amazing stories to share, there nothing better than to listen tentatively to these stories. So come by surf my couch.

04/2011-I recently hosted 3 Austrians and it was an awesome experience, learned so much from them and I hope they learned from me as well.

06/2011-My sister and I surfed at weaverville, NC and our hosts were amazing. They showed us asheville and we went on duckies down the Nantahal river.

07/2011- agnes and mom, they came over and got to know some french as well as their culture and that paris is not all of france, they also have nice scenic views.

Interests

I love to stay active and partake in surfing, mt.biking, paddle boarding, rock climbing, and underwater basket weaving. Love laughter and having long conversations about meaningless politics or religion. I enjoy good beers, full bodied red wines, strong coffee, and a good stogie. Just got into the running scene, so if you like to run or take your running shoes wherever your travels may take you, join me and ill take you on some nice running route in miami.
