About Me


The same thing we do every night, my friend - Try to take over the world!




"¡Que chucha!" as solver of a lot of problems. It is an expression from Peru that means: it doesn´t matter or don´t worry about that.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I`ve been traveling trough Southamerica those days, and met a lot of nice people who offer their houses and their friendship. Couchsurfing is awesome!


Try new things (specially new kinds of food)
Meet new people, diferents cultures
Conquer the world
