About me

I'm a law student that loves politics, history, hitchhiking, cinema and arts in general.

I'm crazy about mint chocolate.

I'm moving to France in September/2013 to study my master in Political Science. In my free time I'll be able to hitchhike through Europe and Middle East.

Other information for guests:

If you're visiting Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo, and wants to come to Minas Gerais, Juiz de Fora is a good entrance.

It's not a touristic city - not at all - it's a medium city with a good public university. So it's basically a student city. With students from all over Minas Gerais, and from all over Brasil. During the classes, the bars are always full, there are good parties... during the vacations the city life gets a lot slower.

I said that here is a good entrance, because from here you can easily do carpooling to other cities of Minas, like Ouro Preto, São João del Rey, Tiradentes and Belo Horizonte.
And from here you can visit the Ibitipoca Park, a very nice park with a lot of caves, waterfalls, natural lakes and a wide range of wild life.
Minas Gerais is a must know state. A lot of culture, fantastic views, very nice people, very rich food.

I live in a small apartment, but very cozy, in my opinion. It's a building where practically all the residents are students too, so it's kind of a big república (how we call students residences here in Brasil). With people getting in and out all the time, looking for their glass (that they've probably forgotten after the last party), asking for sugar or a dvd...

There are two beds in the bedroom (and some mattresses) and a sofa-bed in the living.

I don't smoke, but I don't care if you want to smoke, by the way I have a tiny collection of ashtrays (i used to smoke).

I study - or at least, try - during the week, free on the weekends. But that doesn't mean I do nothing during the week, there are good things to do (most of the time better than in the weekends) like some samba parties, happy hour in some bars, and good discounts at the cinema.
