I expect my guests to treat the apartment well. Please do not make or play loud noises/sounds/music at night. Please do not smoke inside of the apartment. You may notice that we have a rather large stash of alcohol (I quite enjoy making cocktails). Please do not drink from any of those bottles unless specifically told otherwise.
I am a Cuban-American lawyer in New York. My main interests are cinema, art, food, wine, cocktails, literature, music, travel, theater, and basketball. I am very easygoing and social.
My favorite travel locations are Lisbon, Barcelona, and Rome. I am planning on visiting Berlin this year.
When I travel, I like to eat at the best restaurants in the city/region be they fancy restaurants with Michelin stars or equally tasty local cheap eats, try local spirits/beers/wines and cocktails, discover the local cinephile communities, and visit museums and galleries among other things.
My style of traveling is very relaxed. I like to stay in one city/region for as long as possible so that I have enough time to explore it and never feel like I only have time to catch all the major tourist attractions. I prefer to spend time in the places that locals like to visit. I like to have a certain amount of privacy when I travel - I don't want to be sharing a room with multiple strangers. However, I do like meeting and socializing with new people - perhaps getting some drinks or food. As a guest I am very respectful to my host and their home.
