About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

* The less I think of me, the better. Its better to pay attention to Life. Just learning and enjoying =)Prefiero no pensar mucho en mí, es mejor prestar atención a la Vida. Sólo aprendo y disfruto, que para mí es algo muy parecido =)

PHILOSOPHY

To see the reality / Ver la realidad* To understand and learn from the people I meet / Comprender y aprender de la gente que encuentro * Enjoy the present of Life / Disfrutar del presente de la vida.* Not to be trapped in the customs, the patterns, the uses, but enjoy everything as it is. / No quedarme atrapado en las costumbres, las rutinas, los patrones, si no disfrutar de las cosas por lo que son.
