I'm trying to change the world
I do a joint-PhD in History of Sciences in Salvador da Bahia (Brazil) and UCB-Lyon I(France) since April 2012.
During the week I work in my lab at the university and I hang out with my friends the week-end.
I'm an easy going and quiet person.
I like talking about many things, especially
history, politics and culture.
With my group of friends we like cooking and share a meal, attending shows, drink a beer in a pub, going for a trek...
Come as you are and share what you know.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Almost every week I go to the CS meeting in the city I live.
I host couchsurfers as often as I can, mainly during my vacations.
It depends of the time I have but I can show you the city and the places I like.
My main experience was an one month trip in Argentina and Chile in October 2012. 30 days surfing from couch to couch and meeting incredible people.
I also have hosted people, mainly when I was in Brazil when I discovered the community.
Music, Movies, and Books
Jazz and its derivatives
A lot of Marxist literature, scientific papers, but also novels (among others : Quesnaux, Pennac, Sarte, Camus, London, Asimov, Pratchett)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I left my life in France in 2012 to spend one year in Brazil, without speaking one word of Portuguese before coming.
Countries I’ve Visited
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom
