Interação com os hóspedes
I was a graduate student and instructor of Portuguese & Brazilian Studies at Tulane University, New Orleans, for 7 years, where my job basically was introducing young Americans to Brazilian culture and customs.Now, as a full-time writer, renting out my apartament for a few days a month is the perfect way to both meet cool people from all over the world and supplement my income. (You can see some of my books on the photos. Just search my name to find out more.)This is actually my very own home, where I really, really live. So, feel free to browse my books but don't take any. :) If you plan on "living la vida loca" in Rio (parties, drugs and hookers), please go to a hotel. Don't thrash my place. Please.While you're here, I'll be staying with my girlfriend a few subway stations away, and I'll be personally available if you have questions or need help in any way.Coming back home from the US was the best thing I've ever done. Rio is going through its best moment in 80 years. It's great to be here. You'll enjoy it too.

After 7 years in New Orleans, I'm back to my native Rio.
I'm a (struggling) professional writer.
Renting out my place for a few days a month to foreign tourists is my way of meeting interesting new people and making ends meet.
During your stay, I'll be at my girlfriend's, so please take good care of my house, it's the only one I've got. :)
