todo el tiempo del tiempo por delante

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Any way I can. I host when I can, surf when I'm in a new area. Meet-ups, event organizing, and just plain telling everyone whose interested about the awesomeness that is couchsurfing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted and surfed with a lot of people . I'm working on putting together more CS meet-ups and parties, since they are super fun. I've always sought out local CSers as teachers when I'm in an unfamiliar area.

Interests

When I'm not looking for adventures I like to read and write and watch movies. I see food as the key to change - I like growing, harvesting, cooking, serving, eating food. If I care about what I eat, I care for myself. If I care about what I cook and serve, I care for others. If I care about what I grow and how I grow it, I care for the land. Food as a path to social change, farming as the new revolution. What's more important than food?
