Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed, and I host in Maceió whenever I can. I enjoy receiving surfers in Maceió because they help me get out and explore new beaches.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I went to my first CS meeting last night! It's a great way to meet new people in a new city. I don't know why I didn't try it earlier!

Interests

Reading, writing, listening to music, singing along to the music all afternoon, pondering the meaning of life, chillin´, laughing, meeting fun people, going out on the town with fun people

Music, Movies & Books

I´m currently reading Isabel Allende´s ´´La Isla bajo el Mar´´ and Amartya Sen´s ´´Development as Freedom.´´ I can´t read just one book at a time-- so many good ones out there!

Just got some new Janelle Monae, Kid Cudi, Jay-Z and Beyonce tracks. Add Jau Peri to that.

I performed at Carnegie Hall with my youth orchestra.
