I love uruguayan Carnaval and Murga! I listen music from all over the world because I like languages and new rhythms!

Me encanta tocar guitarra bajo sol!...y otras cosas, pero eso es basicamente lo que mas me gusta!
Me encanta el Carnaval y la Murga! Me gusta escuchar musica de todo el mundo porque me gustan los idiomas y los nuevos ritmos.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't have a couch available right now but I offer a drink or something, to meet up and I'll show you some cool places of Montevideo or just chat, take a walk, play guitar in a park or what ever comes to your mind!
