About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore, learn, taste, see, hear and feel.

ABOUT ME

My life is shot in technicolor. I am Wednesday's child. I am made out of meat. I am a crazy cat lady. And I love cilantro.

PHILOSOPHY

The short and thick have no trouble intimating suggestions of violence; they have an easier time of it than the tall and skinny. Yet the tall and skinny are not utterly without strategies either; they can cultivate a certain look and posture that mark callousness and violence. And then it is remarkable what carrying an Uzi will do for the shortfall of genetics. (From Humiliation -and other essays on Honor, Social Discomfort, and Violence by W.I.Miller, p.62)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am still new here but apart from the couch surfing I am very interested in the oppertunities that the groups offer to meet interesting people in Mexico City and elsewhere.

Interests

Seeing, hearing, reading, writing, documenting, laughing. I love traveling, seeing new things and learning new things. And my four amazing cats.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sitting on the beach at the most western part of Iceland, watching the midnight sun reflect off Greenland's glaciers.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a good cook. I speak fluent french (I minored in French at university and lived in France for two years, working and attending university) and would be happy to meet people and exchange french lessons for spanish lessons or just to practice conversation. The same goes for english if anyone is interested.
