Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I can say that my experience in CS has been great. I've met a lot of interesting people "surfing", hosting and going out to a "coffee or a drink". And I've visited nice local places that just as a tourist it would be unlikely to happen.

Interests

Meeting people and share ideas, philosophies and experiences in life. Learn something new. Practice my english and my spanish.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: bossa nova, samba, choro, MPB (brazilian popular music), soul, indie rock and so on, depeding on the moment. I love music, particularly brazilian music.
Some singers/groups that I enjoy: Gilberto Gil, Adriana Calcanhotto, Milton Nascimento, Tom Jobim, Vini­cius de Moraes, João Gilberto, Caetano Veloso, Dorival Caymmi, Paulinho da Viola, Chico Buarque, Novos Baianos, Marisa Monte, Lucas Santtana, Ceu, Curumim, Lenine, Julieta Venegas, Joss Stone, Norah Jones, Lauryn Hill, Tina Turner, Alabama Shakes, Yo la lengo, Belle and Sebastian, Vampire weekend, Daft punk ...

Movies: a lot of them, but generally that makes me think and feel or just laugh, like "Little Miss Sunshine", "La vita e bella", "Cinema Paradiso", "Magnolia", "The sessions", "Le fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain", "O sal da terra" (Sebastião Salgado doc) ...

Books: poems from "Manoel de Barros", "Carlos Drummond de Andrade" and "Mario Quintana"; chronicle from "Fabricio Carpinejar"; novels like "The white masai", "A maquina de fazer espanhóis", "100 dias entre o ceu e o mar".

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Play with a little lion.
Swimming with dolphins in their natural habitat.
Do a 4-day trek at Vale do Pati (Chapada Diamantina).

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you about brazilian music, some portuguese, how to prepare a "caipirinha" - a tradicional Brazilian drink - or how to cook a "brigadeiro" - a very popular candy in Brazil. And it would be a pleasure give you tips about the places I had visited.

I'd like to learn about the language and cultural aspects from the place I'm visiting, also about new places/countries, personal philosophies, experiences and lifestyles...
It's always a good time to learn, even with the small things.

Share experiences and ideas. This is the best part and what I hope from CS.
