I have never been to the country of Uzbekistan, ancient crossroads of the Silk Road, and house of Tamerlane. For my interest in history, I desire to go.
I hope this doesn't come off as too cutesy. I also want to visit Papua New Guinea. Both countries scare the heck out of me.
What am I looking for in a woman?
* supreme self-confidence
* athleticism and a spirit of adventure
* sly wit
* ambition tempered with the ability to enjoy a nap
* a smile that is honest
* eyes that speak of humor (this might be the same as 'sly wit')
* effortless elegance
More about me:
I am half-Colombian, half Baltimorian. I was raised in Charleston, South Carolina, went to school in the midwest, and now live in Back Bay. Boston, along with San Francisco, and Austin is one of the best cities in the US. These are all incontrovertible facts.
* magical-realism literature,
* staying in shape (running and gym)
* creative writing,
* music composition,
* eating ribs,
* eating biryani,
* eating saba sushi,
* books about ancient history that are annotated with detailed maps
* deconstructing social mores,
I disdain avocado. I abhor avocado. If avocado were a person I would kill it and go to jail. If avocado were a mountain, I would erode it.
I travel a lot for work. I used to travel a lot for *fun*, but not much recently since a new job has introduced me to the horror that is zone five boarding. In my time I have been to Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay, Iceland, France, Italy, and India. Also Gary, Indiana. When I was younger I took my 1996 Toyota Corolla (Red) on a two month journey around the continental states. In the trunk, I had a tent, an ax, and other such sundries, and by the end of the two months I had completed visiting all 48 continental states and many a national park. I think Glacier barely edges out Yellowstone for the most amazing.
I believe myself to be humorous and dry, though people have observed that I will make jokes that only I find funny. This is fine with me. If the need arises, I can be serious and respectful for long stretches of time.
I can dance too. Better yet, I like dancing.
