PHILOSOPHY

"We Do Not Inherit the Earth from Our Ancestors; We Borrow It from Our Children" Trying to do what I can to make this world live a better place...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Originally I suscribed because I've done a trip from Montevideo, to Iguazu, passing by nice places in Argentina.
I was travelling from hostels to hostels to visit places but I wanted to meet people more directly, try to learn more about Uruguayans and Argentinos.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well.. before it was a little bit complicated because i lived in a 11m² student room unfortunately.
And now. I've just finished to move in a new place in SA so I can welcome people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None.

Interests

I love playing music, have played a lot of instruments but my favourite one is my folk guitar,
My student association has a bar where I use to serve often as a bartender,
I do electronics as a hobby,
I try to practice running at least once a week,

Teach, Learn, Share

It depends on what people like to discuss. I really enjoy talking music with people to discover local bands and then follow on culture and local habits. Talking about foods. Maybe give 1-2 recipes and then talk about things to do in the region.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Discussions around the fire/the table, drinks if we go hand out, meals, I can also share tips to travel where I come from. Music moments if you have a guitar.
