My self-summary
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 progress
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working and doing my research in Social Anthropology. I'm trying to improve my english and know the city deeply.
I’m really good at
Breaking rules, cooking, having intelectual or political conversation, taking care of friends, improvising trips, driving (I miss my car)
The first things people usually notice about me
My strong accent
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I spend a lot of time with a non fictional books in my hands, but I love novels and I would love to have more time to spend with them. My favorites are Hopscotch by Julio Cortazar, La mujer habitada by Gioconda Belly, One Hundred Years of Solitude by García Marquez, The house of the spirits by Isabel Allende.

My movies: XxY directed by Lucía Puenzo; Carla's song by Ken Loach or most of the movies with Ricardo Darin as princial actor.

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 Orleans)

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...
Six things I could never do without
Friends, my bicycle(s), my notebook and my quill, music, books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Power dinamics, gender opression, futur trips, my friends...
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing, reading a book, watching a movie, having a wine with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a profile in this website
You should message me if
If you don't want to convince me that anarchy is an utopia. If you have spent some time thinking about gender construction and patriarchy
The two of us
