About Me


- PLEASE DON'T SEND ME REQUESTS MORE THAN 10 DAYS IN ADVANCE. My job is not the classic Moday to Friday job and sometimes I can be called for voluntary-well paid overtime and I don't want to commit to something that I might not be able to accomplish.
- A FULL profile is mandatory.
- Shitty couchrequests from empty profiles will be replied with a simple NO with no further explanation.
- ¿Eres español o latinoamericano? Escríbeme en español. Se me hace una verdadera tontería hablar en inglés entre hispanohablantes...
- I'm not hosting people attending concerts (unless Pink Martini or Tokyo Jihen are playing).
- If you're staying only for one night, I'm most likely to say NO because I would barely have time to meet you.

Welcome to the Spider's lair!!!
Now in Warszawa, AKA Wawa, the city that just like the phoenix bird was reborn from the ashes to become the second coolest place in the world. ★Number one is Mexico City, for sure!★

My name is Alberto but most of the people know me as "EL ARAÑO" (The Spider). I' ll tell you the whole story later :P
I moved to Warszawa recently. My dream was to live in Poland. I found a job through the Internet and now I don't know for how long am I gonna stay here! :)

I didn't really want to get to this point, but due to the exaggerated quantity of shitty requests from people that think that I'm nothing else than a free hostel, I won't even consider yours if you don't include this secret magic password:

I'm a normal guy (you know... 2 hands, 2 legs, 3 noses...) working as a programmer in a bank. I like to meet interesting people and share experiences.
I'm a very relaxed dude. Sometimes I can seem to be so cold... but I'm not! I just need to have a good conversation subject and I'll be able to talk and joke for hours! :D

I'm a big fan of "soccer" (In Mexico I was at the stadium supporting my team each 2 weeks) and because of CS I also became a fan of Lucha Libre (Mexican Wrestling) !

Even if I'm not really good I like photography I try to do my best and sometimes I get my reward. I'm specially proud of my PsychoTeddy Project :)

I'm not a party animal but I'm always in for sharing a couple drinks, some snacks, listening good music and having long chats.

I'm quite new to this city and might not be always able to reply to all your questions, but I'll try make my best in order to show you the best things of this great place!

Qué facil decirlo: "hasta pronto". Como decir "ahorita vuelvo, voy a la esquina a comprar cigarritos". Porque cruzar una frontera es otra cosa. Como salir de casa a sabiendas de que no cargamos las llaves del retorno. Eso: salir del país es salir de casa.
-David Martí­n del Campo-

On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur. L'essentiel reste invisible aux yeux
-A. de Saint-Exupéry-

You see things and you say "why?".
But I dream of things that never were and I say "why not?".
-George Bernard Shaw-

Che vale la pena vivere, mi chiederai "si, ma perché?", só solo che ti diró "vale la pena, vedrai"... da adesso in poi.

I nawet kiedy będę sam nie zmienię się, to nie mój świat.
Przede mną droga którą znam, którą ja wybrałem sam.
