Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet interesting and good people, hopefully to learn new things, and to become a good friend.
Nevertheless there are billion of peoples in the world, the only person I can meet is just 0.00001% or less!? So I want to cherish peoples I met in CS as a person of destiny whom Gods let me introduce.
