One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cycling from midnight to 6am around Moscow was one of the best things I've ever done. So simple, but so so amazing. Diving in Thailand. I cried some times while travelling: getting to Machu Picchu, seeing the Parternon, entering Angkor Wat.What, admiring the Mt Ararat...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some Portuguese and samba (oh, yes, such a cliché for a person coming from Brazil, but... hehe).

Whatever you teach me, I'll be happy to learn. It can be Arabic taught by a Norwegian in the Philippines or Egyptian food taught by a Mexican in Namibia. I'm a good student. And I enjoy the process much more than the result. :-)
