Interaction with Guests
In the week days, I work at night, giving classes, preparing them and editing videos. Therefore, I sleep during the morning. I'm generally available to lunch with my guests (I know a lot of good restaurants close to my apartment) and make them some company during the afternoons. In the weekends, I am mostly free. :)
