Join Couchsurfing to see Martin’s full profile. It’s free!
Hi! I’m Martin I’ve been living in Córdoba since 2009 and I feel myself as a Cordobés but in truth I’m from La Pampa, a province in the center of Argentina. I always like clarifying this, because I don’t have the famous Córdoba accent. I think my idea about couchsurfing have maturated along the time.
At the beginning I used to receive people at home because I thought that would make easier for me find a host when I travel. Then I had the opportunity of live abroad for a time and CS helped me to make many friends and discover different cultures, so when I returned to Argentina I started again receiving people, but with the idea (and may be the necessity) to share the time, the costums, the culture… After that, the routine obligated me to stop with CS for a time but now I’m ready to start again!
Now May 29 I'm re-editing my profile and I feel everything I wrote before so actual, so I'm gonna keep it ;)
Here in Córdoba I work as a volunteer in two organizations that address social reality from two different points of view, or rather they deal with two completely different aspects. One of them is Techo, an organization who work at Córdoba settlements taking notes about the situation of the families who live there, building emergency houses, and doing some others different programs. And the other one is Cordobesiando a group into the national university of Córdoba who work with students from different parts of the world who come to Córdoba to do an exchange, our mission is to spread the Argentinian and Latin American culture doing workshops about history, music, cinema, dance etc. Cordobesiando, with a philosophy of a world without frontiers, also wants to export our model of open and public university where the students work for others students.
I enjoy reading a book, going out (to take a walk or to go party haha) and enjoy talking while we are drinking Mate. I visited some countries in the American continent and of everywhere, I took a little bit of knowledge. I speak Spanish (It’s my mother language), Portuguese (It’s a language what I love) and English (The most necessary language for me and the worst I speak haha). At moment I´m trying to improve my English a little more.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I think things like Couchsurfing help us to be better people. Just think about it, if you turn on the TV or if you read the news everybody are telling you how distrustful you have to be. But suddenly you discover CS and then you are going out or receiving at home (your home!) a completely strange.
Temas que me gustan, o que últimamente noto que surgen mucho en mis conversaciones.
Historia Latinoamericana y Argentina
Historia de Córdoba, me gusta pasear por la ciudad y hablar de lo que vamos viendo
Política, me gusta escuchar distintos puntos de vista, pero debo admitir que me gustan las visiones latinoamericanistas, integracionistas y el pensamiento social.
Me gustan las relaciones internacionales (es lo que estudio)
Derechos LGBTTI, lucha, reconocimiento
Ahora con unos amigos estamos emprendiendo un proyecto literario, así que estoy descubriendo mi faceta como escritor... de eso podemos hablar ;)
Todo acompañado por mates, bajo el sol de Córdoba
