Settle down after lots of wandering
A couple of young teachers wanting to explore the world's infinite possibilities of having fun and learning from other people's lives and minds. Above it all we are perfectly clean and really hot-looking, talkative as can be standed.
"I'm not interested in Humanity, but I'm very fond of human beings."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We used to be common couchsurfers until we decided to make a one year trip through america together. Now we are split between Kolkata and Lomé at the starting point of a new life, with professional pretexts... I mean projects!
Hosted by several Csers of South America.
Gracias a todos por su amistad!
