About Me


Turn the world green


Though I consider myself agnostic, the other day I found a prayer, with some things I loved...and couldn't do anything but to carry it around all the time...

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time.
Enjoying one moment at a time.

Really my motto.


I am very much of a healthy hippy. Enjoy everything around.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't done anything yet...I guess things that follow from now on will be different...

I'll learn on the way


None yet...but soon.


Botanic...I'm beginning to make bonsais from fruit seeds I am planting...
but by living in Madrid, I also enjoy the things the city has to offer...movies, theaters, museums, bars...

and of course...riding my bike, which is always a thrill!! I keep on putting lights everywhere. Definitely, tunning my bike.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many...right now I'm a lot into Jazz, my Billy Holiday has the most precious voice I've ever heard, but I listen to anything, as long as it is good.

About movies, I'm crazy about Robert Guediguian, and the images he portrays of his Marseille. That's one of the reasons why I'm eager to go there. Great way to learn some French, also...I can't wait to see his last one "Lady Jane".

And about books...there are too many. I just discovered Haruki Murakami's Tokio Blues Norwegian Wood, and can't put it down.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy being an English teacher, giving form to my bonsai trees, going outdoors...travelling and knowing people, and of course move around Madrid in my bike.

There are always things to learn from everyone.
