Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to Vancouver a year ago to work in the DTES and write the
ethnography for my PhD. The bike and my notebook have become my
partners in the adventure that is to discover a new city.
I have not fallen in love with Vancouver yet. The weather is one of
the reasons, I'm trying to learn how to dance in the rain with an
smile. Seriously, this city is too serious for me, too much order
and rules. It is difficult to find room for the slyness and the
craftyness. I keep trying to love it.
I love improvisation and surprises. An example of a perfect day
could be to wake up with no plan and to end the day sleeping in a
beach (my favorite place) or going to dance and goto sleep the next
day after seeing the sunrise.
I like to have fun but I don't forget that the actual world system
is bullshit. Its roots are patriarcal, unfair, racist and I am
commited to do my best trying to change it.
Monogamy and heteronormativity are rules that I can not respect,
but I'm working hard with myself to diconstruct them... work in

I'm not really into TV shows, I don't have TV but I have to
reconize that they are a good tool to learn english. Anyway, I
really liked The wire and Treme (I would love to go to New
I love all kind of music, I choose one or another depending of the
moment. Jazz for reading, John Coltrane, Miles Davis or Charlie
Parker would be my choice. Flamenco-fushion when I'm homesick, El
bicho, D'Callaos, Amparanoia, Paco de Lucia. Latin or hip hop to
dance, I love Calle 13 (smart, political and danceable). Spanish
Punk Rock when I am riding my bike. Songwriters when I'm sad or
melancholic, Leonard Cohen, Joaquin Sabina, Ani Difranco...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, my bicycle(s), my notebook and my quill, music, books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
