About Me




Well, ins this "comunity", the most important thing is to get heart people, physical appereance is just an accident, so, that is a difficult issue to deal in lima with cs guys, but go on the fight :) I have lived in Sweden, and was such a nice cs experience, so, I want to make the difference on that,..I am an open minded people, who is very committed to preserve environment from the human activities. Now I like to enjoy in a farm in Pachacamac, Churipampa, https://www.facebook.com/churipampa.pachacamac?fref=ts near south of Lima, the weekends, with a nice pool, vegetables, animals, and bonfires, so welcome :). In the weekdays at night I often attend art galleries, art openings, like to share with painter friends new proposals to expands new trends and new locations to show all kind of art. Also I like to tell guest the genuine history of Perú and show its real culture, beyond the touristy trend, cause most of peple felt trapped into the official history and dominant culture. On the other hand by preservation environment are protecting ourselves as a human beings. I think Couch Surfing project is a very interesting model which focuses on changing the traditional view of meeting people beyond a tourist trip which demonstrates that still people believes in people all over the world. I EMPHAZISE THE NON TOURISTY STUFF I LOVE TO SHOW SURFERS ALTERNATIVE SPOTS AND SITES, TAHT IS MY CORE TARGET TO GET DEEP INSIDE LIMA CULTURE.. About my person, can tell you i am talkative, friendly, and like to travel, dance, listening to music, to host my guests, making creative things. Right now i am involved on a aid children project with a couch surfer, friend of mine, that i hosted in my place, last December. I like to go through different human aspects, such as antrophologhy,philosophy, sociology, and life itself. Sweden was so great to open more my mind. We can share our leisure time with our guests and do other activities; cs project consist of getting to know people, getting better as human beings and to be tolerant with other views of life. As a whole cs project is a no consumption alternative of meeting people as people we are no matter what we have but what we are from our hearts.´I am focused on spreading peruvian cuisine by organizing Learning By Doing Events, yeah, when your hands take cooking action the sensation is quite different, it is a living cooking¡¡¡ and people will repeat this experience at their own places, specially foreign csurfers love this kind of learning. For me the most important is that csurfers remember how to cook and the taste of "ceviche", "lomo saltado", "arroz con pollo" " cuy chactado" instead of going to fancy restaurants and being slave of brands¡¡¡ at last peruvian food as a country brand is spreadable for me and keeps in people´s mind¡¡¡¡ I feel proud of being the creator of this idea. Besides, my another passion is the forest for luck now i got a cottage at Lima Lanscapes, on the top of Matucana, so, tekking climbing, nature, wild animals, everywhere¡¡ also got an oven where to cook vegetables meat everything, so, I like to emphazise the non touristic idea as well¡¡¡


EPICUREANISM, think more about functions and less about objects, be susteinable and balanced with my self and with our mother earth, to reach the goodness every minute of my life through empirical living, acta non verba as roman said, exchange spiritual richness and nor material stuff, be a good host in my guest'hearts, that is what must lasts forever, our energy as the main entity to link us as human beings, to find a superior connection beyond the common order of things, to become more human being through other human beings

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


According to my experience at this site I left a testimonial over it on CouchSurfing web site as folows:
"Every day through this way of knowing human being by a creative idea on internet we are coming back the roots, it just starts in a virtual way and develops through a face to face contact, it is focused on trusting people and from there discover all other aspects of society, culture, and so on, cause do we need any kind of commercial structure to know one another? host and guest are an unit itself, no hotels, no agencies, no tours, no merchandising in the middle, just freedom and experience; this site is the best window to make and to get stronger cultural relationships from all over the world in a natural way; at last, we only need two people to build up a relationship, nothing more, so, just by adding one ingredient: confident and trust, csurfing helps to build up these concepts on people mind, it is just we have to rethink the things and reeducate ourselves, if people feels like that, we will realize that commercial structures and formal concepts are no neccesary to take action¡¡¡" Magno Collazos( Perù)"

Couchsurfing is the symbol of this culture and a new lifestyle, so, the most important target is to enhance the confidence from one another, that is the first step to build up better human relations. I like to show off my guests the cultural places and the real Peruvian history about the main events in my country, cause not all information in the brochures and touristic stuff is exact according to our reality, so, I like to review and re-think everything is written in the books and official information, so, my guests can join me on this activities at the same time we are visiting our cultural sites. A living csurfing relationship is what I like to do most.

Besides, I have enriched my experience on this site hosting brand new csurfers mostly what is the most outstanding cause like that I support to increase the crew and cause the first couchsurfer had no any reference as well as the first host isn'i it? so, I am not a vouch picker neither i am looking to fill my storage with artificial references, neither to become an Ambassador, think in the future the designations should be granted by the system interviewing surfers and make an assesment, not based on references number neither based on the number of events you have organized, cause this stuff in some places rules by loyalties and not institutions and tends to pervert the system. Cleaning is the best aspect, every csurfer must respect cleaning conditions, take showers, cleaning the bathroom, shower, everthing, by using sprays and cleaning stuff to avoid problems to their host.


a friend of mine who lives in sweden( member of cs) stayed in my apparment in Barranco, we spent exciting times in Lima, an traveled to Mancora, this happened last year. We get along between us, and he invited me this year to visit him at Uppsala, Sweden, so I accepted the invitation and traveled over there, was a nice experience, and understood how scandinavian people got an oustanding development based on developing the values and confidence from one to anothter. I traveled to Finlanda and Norway as well, and nor less exciting than Seweden
