About Me

Yes, I am brazilian. No, I don't like football, nor carnival.

I don't talk much, much more like an observer. That doesn't mean I am mute. I don't like noisy crowded places, though I like some parties if the music is good and if I have enough space to dance. I like studying history and arts, though very political matters, even though they sound very interesting, tend to bore me. I like to explore artistic expressions, though I need more discipline. I think I am socially lazy, and sometimes I can be very boring, depending on the circumstances I meet people. But I also think I can be very interesting, depending on who I am talking to.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hiked Jiankou, a wild part of the Great Wall with amazing people.

Teach, Learn, Share

There are lots of things I would like to learn and things that I don't even know I want.

During my couchsurfing experience I noticed that the thing I teach the most is how to make small cool boxes from postcards. If there are anything else that I can teach, it will be my pleasure doing it.
