Join Couchsurfing to see Maryann’s full profile. It’s free!
I just like meeting people from different cultures and traveling. The world is my home. As much as I try to get rooted in one place, I'll always be a citizen of the world. I've seen too much to put blinders on!
Currently I live in Coyoacan, Mexico City and and loving it. Before that I was in the states getting my MFA in Fiction Writing and before that I lived in Buenos Aires for four years. I just can't stay settled in the states!
I also teach Creative Writing for English speakers and Literary English for ESL students. Details on my website if that interests you: www.maryannullmann.com.
I love creative types and also people involved in social justice or environmental work. Love both urban and nature outings, live jazz, theater, lazy sunny days at the park. Am trying to get a roof terrace garden going, which I know next to nothing about, so ideas are good!

Music, Movies, and Books
So. Many. Books. Julio Cortazar, Kafka, Isabel Allende, Margaret Atwood, Barbara Kingsolver, Haruki Murakami, Milan Kundera, Italo Calvino, Junot Diaz, etc. etc. Recently read Wild by Cheryl Strayed--excellent!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One? Geez. Parajumping in Patagonia--Lake District near Bariloche. So beautiful.
