Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite book is El olvido que seremos, by Colombian writer Héctor Abad Faciolince.
I love many different films and songs of a wide range of genres, so I wouldn´t be able to choose. I listen to soul, R&B, flamenco, sertanejo, samba, celtic music, salsa, bachata, dancehall, kizomba, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Many, but I remember particularly the Grand Canyon

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some basic steps to dance bachata, salsa and champeta.
