I'm Brazilian, pretty easygoing and will do my best to have our guests feel welcome. I am a Soc major at UC Berkeley and work as an Administrative Manager at MaestroConference.
It may be biased of me, but my hometown (Florianopolis) is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and I recommend a trip there.
Five things that I cannot live without are my books, leave-in conditioner, sunscreen, work, and going to church (not exactly in this order). George, my husband, is not listed here because he's not a thing (but he is the most amazing guy I know and I couldn't live without him either).
Here are a few other things that I recommend:
BOOKS: "100 Years Of Solitude", and "Slavery by Another Name"
MOVIES: "District 9", and "Miss Ever's Boys"
TV SHOWS: "The Big Bang Theory", and "The X Files"
MUSIC: "Tamela Mann", and "Amy Winehouse"
FOOD: Indian, Mexican, and Thai - yum!
Having me as host means that you have someone you can count on. I will make sure that you feel as comfortable in our home as if it was your own.
I don't have a set life motto but I am a firm believer of doing what's right.
As Dr. King once said, "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Enjoy your trip!
