(Part of my previous html customizations :
I am originally from Milano , then I moved to France for my phD, I'm based in Columbia SC right now. I'm an easy-going and respectful person, I'm passionate about justice and equal rights, I love animals and exploring cultures.
'I don't agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.'
'Whether it comes from a despotic sovereign or an elected president, from a murderous general or a beloved leader, I see power as an inhuman and hateful phenomenon. . . . I have always looked on disobedience toward the oppressive as the only way to use the miracle of having been born.'
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Encouraging people to discover CS. I travel, surf and host folks from all over the world: very thankful for the experiences. And, of course, attending couchsurfing events !
So far, I have been hosted by many wonderful people on my trips in Europe as well as US and I/We have hosted a number of surfers from as far away as China.
I also collaborate with "Columbia Council for Internationals" (CCFI) : http://www.columbiacfi.org/
visited 25 states (11.1%)
Well, I'm interested in meeting people from different places and discovering how they view the world.
In my spare time, I enjoy going out to movies (especially indie films), sometimes have a few friends over for a glass of wine, sometimes a dinner.
Then: Travel. Photography. Science. Food. I like to eat what the locals are eating. Reading. Art Museums. Coffee. Red wine. Clothes Exchange. Bay Area acid rock scene.
