About Me


enjoyng life (...and find a job!)


i love dancing salsa

oct dec 2012

gozando la ciclovia...
(may 2012)I take a tour by bicicle with the guide Mauricio, muy buena onda, I higly recomand this tour, for having a first, but deep in information, perspective of the city

I think I am a simple person but I have several interest.I like music, danceble music, expeciallylatin-balcanic gipsy. I like wandering in nature but also staying in active city. I like searching for mmushrooms in the very early mornig but also clubbing until sunrise. It depends on the moment. I like people able to adapt theirself in different situation. I am curios- Sometime stare at people(I know is not a good thing) cause I found something interesting in their face.I avoid (as much as I can) Italian restaurant when I am abroad, but sometime is interesting...I do not like suv, pick up hummer used in the verysmallstreet city. I do not like Berlusconi. I would like to understand more about computer.I like CS a lot, I have alway met nice persons. Today it's seem that everything is based on money-power-perfetforeverjoungbuinsnessman/woman and people are getting afraid of each others. I think CS help to see things from differents point of view. CS helped me in beeing more openminded, and helped me focus on deeper values. I always suggest CS to y friends.2010-2011 I lived in Berlin and I did a travel in Chile( and Bolivia a little )I am looking forward to going back to America latinaI think to be a positive person,when I met new people I'd always like to talk with them with their motherlanguage, I know it's not possible!but I try to do it at least with latin languagesI worked for a project in chile u can look this web sitewww.reclaimingheritage.orgI really enjoyed this project and also the theacher and my mate were super!
