About Me

I love people, to be with them, to learn about and to get to know them!!!
I was an exchange student through AFS program to USA-Nebraska, in 1970-71 and since then never stopped getting to know people. I love dancing and meditation. I am a widow,have two daughters and 4 grandchidren but live by myself in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil. I have some private students who come for English classes and love the variety of them. Teaching has been my kind of thing since forever but meeting people is the real thing,Making new friends and learning about new cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

A student told me about this and I thought this could be a good oppportunity to get to know more people, maybe one day host someone,but taking someone around town, for lunch,showing them Campinas around, and opening for getting to know more interesting people. it is wonderful how everyone has something to teach and learn with the other and enjoy life, a God's most precious gift. I thrilled on life and people.


I love dancing and meditation for spiritual purposes. Just love helping people,specially now that I am retired but not from life, of course. I love movies a lot and people gatherings,where we sing and chat and learn and share life. But I also enjoy the quietness of my home, at times. Cooking is also something I enjoy doing specially when I have guests around who also love doing so, and help with the dishes,of course!!! LOL!!!! I love Astrology and all that has to be with becoming a better person.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really like music of all sorts but lately I have been more meditative with Mantras and so but love samba. i belong to a biodanza group where and when we enjoy dancing and learning with our body's different messages and emotions. I love country music and Beatles and the songs of the 70's and 60's but just love to learn about new rhytm and beats. For books I love Eduardo Galeano and Mia Couto among others and movies, well,sorry I am still a Harry Potter's lover and love Merlin series, the movies from Cannes Festival, the Cult movies,well i am a movie lover, even participate in a movie session and debate once a month,here in Campinas.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Was going abroad on my exchange student program and really learned about people and myself. I am always changing, I guess this is the amazing thing I do for myself, I am always open for new opportunites concerning people and ways of living. and love travelling, like Telma and Louise, I have a friend who is my partner on this, where the wind takes us, there we go,just like this.
