About Me


Doing what I like at least for some minutes every day


Chronic hedonist, I like anything that has to do with pleasure. I like basic and classic pleasures (eating, travelling, sexetera...)and also the pleasures for the soul. Cinema is the most important of my cultural passions because I like other people's stories when they are well told. That's why one of my favorite pleasures is talking to people about their favorite pleasures.

Hedonista crónico, me gusta todo lo que tiene que ver con el placer. Me gustan los placeres básicos y clásicos (comida, viajes, etc) y tambien los placeres del alma. El cine es mi pasión cultural más importante porque me gustan las historias de otras personas cuando están bién contadas. Es por eso que uno de mis placeres favoritos es hablar con otras personas sobre sus placeres.


I have had a few but I could not figure out which one is "my own" now... My biggest concern now is to "live", meaning doing what I really want to do in life a little every day.

He tenido unas cuantas pero ya no sé cual sería la mía propia :)... Ahora lo que más me preocupa es "vivir", en el sentido de hacer lo que me gusta de verdad un poco cada día.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think it's a great idea. Paying for everything as the stablishment's logic commands seems to me anything but logical.
That's why I don't understand, for example, the fact that there are millions of cars going to the same place every day driven by people who prefer to travel alone to sharing time, space and company with someone else. That's why I think experiences like the car-sharing, the hichhicking or the couchsurfing make us better and are necessary.

Acabo de llegar al proyecto pero para empezar me parece una gran idea. La logica capitalista de pagar por todo sin pensar me parece de todo menos logica. Por ejemplo no entiendo que hayan millones de coches yendo hacia un lugar y preferamos ir solos que compartir tiempo, compañía y espacio con alguien que se dirije al mismo lugar. Por eso experiencias como viajar en coche compartido, el autoestop o el Coachsurfing me parecen enriquecedoras y necesarias.


I travelled though Europe meeting Couch Surfers. It's a great discovery. I met beautiful people!


Above all cinema but also music and everything to do with humanity. I'm interested in politics, psycology...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The plastic bag dancing with the wind in American Beauty. It's probably not the most amazing thing I have ever seen but I'm sure the most amazing thing I ever saw fits in the category suggested in that scene...

La bolsa de plástico bailando con el viento en American Beauty. Seguramente no es verdad pero seguro que lo más bonito que he visto entra en el concepto que explica esa escena.

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess I wouldn't be a bad Laughing teacher but that's hardly teachable... You can give it to others as a cold...

Supongo que reirme pero no sé si eso se enseña... En todo caso se contagia...
