One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Mmmmmh. Moved to Barcelona after 25 years in Holland? And besides...had lived in Nicaragua too, in the 80', wow that sounds centuries ago! Leaving Argentina?
Now back in Buenos Aires.

Teach, Learn, Share

I live in the n'hood of San Telmo, with the Feria de San Telmo every Sunday in street where I live.
If you stay I may offer you the couch or a mattress in the livingroom.
I'm not more 20, so please keep that in mind. I don't smoke, I'm clean and have good manners. Specially the last I appreciate.

I may teach you the basic of tango. Or tell you something about my travels. Or about the books I published: Holanda Latina (a book in Dutch about the impact of Latin Americans in Holland), 100x Barcelona (about the most singular places in Barcelona), or the one I'm writing now about Jews refugees and nazis in Argentina.
