Lives in Playa del Carmen
Since Jul 2009
35-49 year old male
Hi there, as you have already noticed I am based at the Mexican Caribbean a beautifull place full of color and life, wonderfull landscapes, beaches and the extraordinary blue caribbean sea, such a paradise... I was born in Mexico City , i used to live in downtown, pretty close to the place in wich the archaeologist Eduardo Matos Moctezuma, found the ruins of the Main Temple of the Aztec Civilization. I am a Story Teller, i always knew it, and when someone listen to my words i feel so glad, because i can bring back to the life the magic of the aztecs, the mayas, the ancient cities that grew up in the middle of the jungle, and i can stil hear the roar of the jaguar, the song of the quetzal and i give a new dimention to the motives of the heroes that created our country and left a legacy that now we call History.
