Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think I can provide hosting to meet new people, make friends and practicing my English.
Creo poder brindar hospedaje para conocer nuevas personas, hacer amistad y practicar mi Inglés.


I have hosting people from different countries and I like it. I think I can do it as well with new people.
Tengo experiencia hospedando gente de muchos países y me gusta. Creo poder hacerlo también con nuevas personas.


I am NOT, I repeat, NOT interested in hosting people who do not shower at least once a day.

Note: There is warm water here but only in case you want to shower at night.
Showering with hot water during the day is understandable when you are sick.

My only interest is to improve English speaking and make contacts I case that I decided to travel in a long future, so if you don't plan to shower daily or don't plan to host in the future, don't bother requesting accommodation.
NO, repito NO estoy interesado en hospedar personas que no se duche al menos una vez al día, así que si usted no tiene planes de ducharse diariamente o no planea dar hospedaje en un futuro, no se moleste en solicitar hospedaje.

Nota: Aquí hay agua tibia pero solo por si desea ducharse por la noche.
Ducharse con agua caliente durante el día, es comprensible cuando se está enfermo.

Mi único interés es mejorar al hablar en inglés y hacer contactos en caso que decida viajar en un futuro lejano.
