About me

Introduction I come from Tenerife, one of the wonderful Canary Islands(I love my place of birth, did you notice? :)). I have worked in four European countries so far and Belgium has just become my fifth country of residence (21 August 2010). The world is way too beautiful to stay in just one place.
Interests Passionate about books, zines, vegetarian recipes & sushi, anthropology, music, Polaroid photography, atheism, campaigning against bullfighting, learning foreign languages, wearing dresses, Shiatsu, cooking, cinema, laughing non-stop and spending quality time with good friends and quite often just enjoying a good read & a wee cup of herbal tea (I seriously heart tea!)
Favorite Movies Ink, Let the Right One In, Garden State, The Cake Eaters, Nuit Noire (a Belgian film with an absolutely gorgeous actor and a most bizarre and fascinating plot!) The Secret Life of Words, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Invictus, Walk on Water, The Motorcycle Diaries, Rabbit Proof Fence, The Notebook, Old Boy, Hard Pill, Code 46, Ginger Snaps Trilogy, French movies and many by Spanish film directors.
Favorite Music Amy Correia, Josh Ritter, Leonard Cohen, Rufus Wainwright, country music, Lisa Ekdahl, Greg Baumont, the sound of Japanese taiko drums, Russian Red, Sidonie, Antónia Font, Ryan Adams, Patrick Wolf, Nightwish, Modest Mouse...the list is endless.
Favorite Books Russian literature lover.
