About Me

CURRENT MISSION

finishing up my duties at Mexico city and go away from this city for a while.

ABOUT ME

Hola, Hi, Oi, Pialli! I'm Cynthia, I'm a very curious person, that's why I like traveling. I like studying and getting involved in different kinds of disciplines, but most of the time I have learned the very important things talking to the oldest people and sharing moments with my friends. Describing myself means a very trouble because, at least for me, requires some level of self-criticism. Here I go: I consider myself as a very curious person so I like hearing new stories and learn new things. I'm very consider human and I like to help others. At first sight I could seem a shy girl but then you can see that I'm a very talkative person because I like to meet new people from other cultures and share what I know to do. Well, that's what I say, you can ask to my friends hahaha... And you could meet me!

PHILOSOPHY

Well, I'm sorry for writing this part in Mexican Chilango Spanish, but is the language which I can express better my ideas.

La vida es un viaje que uno decide como llevar. Creo que la actitud que tengamos ante la vida marcara mucho de nuestra personalidad. Considero la autocritica un ejercicio muy importante que nos hace falta, deberiamos practicarla por lo menos una vez al año. Todos tenemos cosas buenas y malas y hay que saber reconocer nuestros aciertos y nuestros errores. Algo que debo proponerme es estar mas presente en el aqui y ahora, pues muchas veces soy bien pensativa del pasado y me angustia el futuro... jajajaja. Aquí en Mexico a eso le llamamos "Ser bien clavado". Pero hay que dejar ir las cosas pasadas, cultivar el presente y sonreirle a nuestro futuro. Estoy segura que muchas veces todos nos hemos caido, pero no hay que dejarnos vencer porque no nos imaginamos las aventuras que vendran despues y la satisfaccion de vivir.

Para mí, los viajes son bien importante, porque nos cambian la mirada sobre lo "ya sabido",nos hacen conocernos y re-conocernos.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I participate offer my home to you as other have done to me or show you around the alternative places, special places of my hometown that I would like to share. Of course I offer my friendship.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well, I had a Couchsurfing experience by accident: when I was traveling to Chiapas, here in Mexico, I met a friend who lived there and I stayed at his home, there a girl from Israel arrived with 2 excellent travelers from Spain and we went together to Guatemala. I really enjoyed meeting those friends, so I decided to join Couchsurfing because I think it is a good way to meet interesting people.

Interests

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I realized that my granny knew a native language of Mexico, called mixteco, but my mother doesn't speak anymore because of the shame of being indigenous in Mexico. I started talking with my grandma about her memories, about her life. And since then I start asking about my roots and try to define my identity as a mexican girl.

When In this really big city I find a place where you can't see any building or listening to any city noise, It's like a part of country side moved to this big city.

When I traveled to Guatemala and hear what my neighbors think about my country. You can know yourself through others.

when I fall in love with something or someone or sometimes. hahaha.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well... I can teach how to make your own notebook, some mexican spanish words, how to make mexican chocolate from cocoa plant.

Learn? What I can learn is always a surprise for me... You can never imagine what you are going to learn meanwhile you are living...

Share... I share my friendly words! ja :)
