Although I am very sociable and I constantly meet people in this city, they tend to leave after a while (I mostly hang out with expats). So I´m always interested in getting to know someone new, and I thought I´d give this site a try...
Being a friend
Books: I LOVE fiction. If I have to rank 3 favorite authors off-the top of my head, I´ll go for: Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortázar and Leopoldo Marechal (all from Argentina).
Just as a sample of the type of readings I enjoy, here go a few of the books I had recently finished at the time of writing this... Which is probably out of date by the time you read it. I tend to read different ones at the same time, and there´s always new ones about to get delivered to my place: "NW" (Zadie Smith); "The marriage plot" and "The Virgin Suicides" (J. Eugenides); " A visit from the Goon Squad" (J. Egan), "The White Tiger" (A. Adiga), "Travesuras de la niña mala" (Vargas Llosa), "Submarine" (J. Dunthorne), "Purity" and "Freedom" (J. Franzen), "Everything is Illuminated" (J. Safran Foer), "This is where I leave you" (J. Tropper), L'ecume des jours (B. Vian). "Cloud Atlas" (D. Mitchell), "The Solitude of Prime Numbers" (P. Giordano). Some day I'll finish "Infinite Jest" (D.F. Wallace.... Would need to I commit 100% to it for a while).
I love to watch anything except terror and action movies. If I had to choose a favorite type of film, I would say that I´m a big fan of Wes Anderson.
Music and food I also like very much, but I devote less time to them.
TV shows: Flight of the Concords, Arrested Development, Downton Abbey, The Office, Weeds, Californication, The Big Bang Theory, Scrubs, New Girl, Girls, How I met your mother, Portlandia, House of Cards, The Mindy Project, SNL, Veep, Scandal, Orange is the New Black.
OK, got tired of this. I´ll tell you more personally, if we ever meet, or maybe I´ll continue working on my profile at some point.
Laptop + Internet connection

(Again, I will probably work a bit more on this later)
Should I stay or should I go
