El fracaso jamas te sorprendera si tu voluntad de vencer se mantiene suficientemente fuerte. ["The failure will surprise you if you ever will to win remains strong enough."]
I was born in Argentina but lived 7 years in Brazil. I love the Brazilian culture .. If you are willing to "exchange" and "learn" soon you would feel part of Brazil. A country at first strange, but now, the "stranger" is now my home country.
I do everything in my life to stay healthy with nutrition and exercise. Macrobiotic, Vegetarian and right now a diet where I don't mix Carbohydrates and protein. My training is the street. I am an urban athlete... Ride a bike, take stars, walk, runn, jump rope, etc. I am also a Kung Fu Instructor (Ving Tsun & Hung Gar) and Personal Trainer in Hong Kong.
