I am a cheese expert and book author. I like to eat (I try to keep vegetarian) and travel the world. Other than food, politics, and food politics, my interest include technology, the internet (i'm an avid (website hidden) person @CarlosYescas and blogger), and art (mostly painting, sculpture, and installation). I am from Mexico and currently live in New York City with my husband. I have lived most of my life outside Mexico, primarily the US, but also in England, Ireland, France, and China. I am very clean. I dislike hotels and I prefer to stay in apartments and get a feel for the city that way. I am very independent and will not need much attention from my host. I expect my host to be respectful of my space and time.
