be free and respect other people freedom

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, a little more difficult but still nice remembers, a trip with "jacaré" ( sort alligators) speacialists in Amazonia in a "caboclos" territory.
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.

Teach, Learn, Share

learn what I can, a day without learning is a wasted day, teach if asked for and if I know,
language exchanges

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 !

I visited more than half the world to see and try to understand, but sorry to say I have seen more than I did understand, we can share ideias and visions.

There is something wrong on CS, as their sats show that I replied only 30% or messages and request!
This is absolutly wrong! since I consider myself as a polite person I replied to 100% to everybody, I really do not like unpolite peole who doesn't reply.
My replying time is from 1 day to 2 weeks , because for instance in China where I am 5 to 8 times a year (job) CS it's not often available.

Countries I’ve Visited

Afghanistan, China

Countries I’ve Lived In

Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States
