About Me

I'm back after a more than 10 year break! I'm older, wiser but my main characteristic remains: Joie de vivre!

I'm interested in politics (leftist!), self development, literature, art, cinema, music, nature, etc.

I live in Maia, outskirts of Porto with my two cats.

Please bear in mind that there's no great transportation from here to Porto. It's a 20min walk to the metro station and there's only a bus.

P.S. Sorry for not being verified but paying for a verification as nothing to do with safety!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music is for the soul! So I'll listen whatever my soul feels like! This means I'll go from Rock to Jazz, from Classical to Electronic, etc etc etc. Like a lot world music too. Led Zeppelin and The Beatles forever!!
Books: mostly portuguese authors such as Fernando Pessoa or Eça de Queirós. The classics, you gotta love them!
Movies: the more films I can watch, the better. Check my watchlist on IMDB
