About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore SA and become fluent in Spanish

ABOUT ME

Hablo Espanol. Quiero aprender mas.

I gave up a great job as a newspaper reporter in Jackson Hole, where Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are located. There's also some sweet skiing there. I left to try to find "it." I'm not sure yet what it is. But I know I want to do some exploring, learn some more Spanish and write. I have a blog, excusemewaitress.com, where I have vowed to attempt to work illegally in South America, mostly as an experiment but also to make a vague point about illegal immigration in the U.S.

Voy a viajar en Sud America y quedarme la mayeria del tiempo en Argentina. Puedo conversar, perro quiero apprender mucho mas de la idioma para placticar mas fasil.

Fui un otra vez y me quede en Bariloche todo mi tiempo en Argentina. Necesito viajar a otras parte de la piez. Wuiero conocer Argentina.

PHILOSOPHY

I live by the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I try to treat people well and do right by them regardless of how they treat me. I don't like to make fun of people and generally accept them for who they are. Of course, if who they are annoys me, I won't stick around. I'm not a massochist.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new to Couch Surfers. I look forward to meeting people and getting to know Argentina better. I am currently couchsurfing with friends and family in Colorado so I can't host anyone just yet.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all music and I feel that every experience ends up getting its own organic soundtrack.

Movies: Stranger than Fiction, Nepoleon Dynomite and Office Space are my favorites

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I took a four-mounth trip to South America three years ago knowing absolutely no Spanish and came back conversant.

Teach, Learn, Share

To share: Once you're through the security gates in a U.S. airport, airlines become remarkabley flexible. You can change your flight free of charge - fly at a different time or even to a different destination. I always buy the cheapest ticket even if the schedule is bad and look ahead of time at what other flights I could catch.
