About Me


Live without haste


I like imagination.I like trees (cedar, oak, olive). And theatre. And movies. And eggplants. And my bike (particularly at night). And reading and hearing stories. Inventing stories (best when together). I like to laugh and see people laugh. I like being and walking (and waking up) in nature. I love it when the light goes off at the cinema. I like drinking scotch while taking a bath (I know how spoilt that sounds). I like to listen to music, to talk to people, to be by forests or the mountains. I like food. I am obsessed with the sea. I like football. I don't have a smartphone or facebook. I don't appreciate consumer-society. I like tea and coffee houses. I don't like to wear a watch. I hate being in a rush. I like to dance. I like time. I'd like to have more time to travel, to learn to dance, to drink tea (especially green). I like to walk and run. I love poetry. I like to dream and talk about dreams.I think there are more things to like than to dislike on earth.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've mainly surfed, but when have the opportunity to host, so I'm glad to do it when I'm around. (Somehow, though, the new cs algorithm relegated me to the umpteenth page of hosts).


Really good up to now...I only met very nice people !

Music, Movies, and Books

A few books that come to my mind :
"The brothers Karamazov", "The Idiot" by Dostoyevsky/ anything (except the poems) by Borges / Seferis' poems/ "War and Peace"- Tolstoy/ "The Leopard" - di Lampedusa/ "White Noise" - DeLillo" / "Soul mountain"- Gao Xingjian / "Snow"-Orhan Pamuk / "The Little prince"/anything by Roberto Calasso/"The Castle"-Kafka / "The Khazar dictionnary" - Milorad Pavic / "Pedro Paramo"-Juan Rulfo / Paul Celan.
So much //

Tom Waits !!
And then Pj Harvey,Nick Cave and Nicolas Jaar. Einsturzende Neubaten. And a bit later Portished. And then perhaps Lhasa and Captain Beefheart. And Bach will be lurking around. Sleaford mods, Aesop Rock. And the Blues. And gospel from the 40s and rock from the 50s. And old men from distant countries playing one-stringed fiddles. And rembetika. And"underground" and some less "underground" hip-hop. And some deep-low-or-whatever-electro.And And And except pop and awful things like dubstep.
I absolutely love music and discovering new stuff in all kinds of genres !

Some films that come to my mind :
Sokurov's "Faust", "The mill and the cross - Lech Majewski, "Just the Wind" -Bence Fliegauf, "Bab'Aziz"- Nacer Khemir, "Princess Mononoke" - Miyazaki, "Stalker" - Tarkovsky, "Once upon a time in the west", "La danza de la realidad"-Jodorowsky, "Ran"-Kurosawa, "Roma"-Fellini, "On the other side"-Fatih Akin, "Night on earth"- Jim Jarmusch...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I wrote all kinds of stuff here at first.
Then I found it all a bit ridiculous.
So I erased it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach all kinds of absurd little things.
You just have to ask.

What I Can Share with Hosts
