One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Not really amazing but I am a proud deserter of french army, as I think that humains are not fitted for bearing uniforms.
- Created my own company in order to meet my liberterian beliefs that waiting for other people to employ you is the first step for slavery :)
NB: You are not forced to agree with me , hihihihihi

TRaveling by local buses from Mexico to Brasil, really enjoy it, same thing in India from Kolkotta to Rajhastan, a little more difficult but still nice remembers, a trip with "jacaré" ( sort alligators) in Amazonia in a "caboclos" territory.
Few days in Thibetan temple which was strictly forbbiden by local civil administration.
ABOUT TRAVELLING:
I travel over 60% of this world, too long to put all visited countries, still to discover Siberia - one of the reasons I am learning russian -if you like to know about my travels please see this link.

Trying to understand personnal and colective psychology ( I wrote trying since still understand little ihihihih )

What I Can Share with Hosts

just share my passions for life , if you come to Paris and lots of cities in West Europ , I can make stones talking to you !
