Look, listen, learn
My wife and I are new to Bloomington. I grew up on the east coast of the US and my wife is from Lima, Peru. We lived together in Cusco and now we've come to Indiana!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Couchsurfing has been so good to me through the years. As a young traveler I met some great people in Canada and Argentina who were kind enough to host me. Then I met my wife through Latin American hitchhikers group.
We hosted some in Cusco and met many a surfers. We're not sure what our role will be in Bloomington but we look forward to meeting new people in a new land.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm trying to learn all I can about African cultures, especially West Africa, especially literature. I like to learn by listening, talking with people from other walks of life.
I can share plenty of what I learned living with my wife in South America. I like to follow global politics and talk about all these things.
