About Me


Stay slim while living in France


I'm just a dude who love to be alive, come on people!! it is more than a privilege to be in this world and to be amazed of the wonders this planet has to offer.
At this moment I'm working as a graphic design teacher at some universities here in my country. Aside of that, I love the easy life( relaxing, listening to music all day long, watching movies, have a nice talk TRAVELLING!!!!). I cannot stand working inside of an office for 8 hours everyday till I age enough to get my pension... what a waste of life!!!!. I hate over the top when the people misrespect the foreing cultures or traditions of some particular contry. Tolerance and understanding is the key to get along.


Today is the first day of the rest of your life so start on living from this point on...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I crossed the border between Honduras and Nicaragua 3 times in less than 15 minutes:
First running behind the bus that had left without me while I was out having some snack in a refill stop.
then going back to Nicaragua after finding out that my passport was missing in the immigration office
and finally returning to the other side to reach the bus again.
sounds terrible, I know but after some years , when I look back sounds really crazy.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I can teach you spanish I have never done that but I will give it a try.

I can whistle with my throat...Sorry I cannot teach u that cuz I don´t know how I do it XD!!! but I can show u.

I love to learn from the others and show at the same time the particularities of my own culture. If I have the ingredients I can show u how to prepare traditional tortilla for breakfast.
