    MY FAMILY

    I am André, I am 33. My parents are Selma - 66, my mom and Zeze - 69, my father.

    MY PARENTS

    My father owns a farm in Jaguaraçú (30 km from Ipatinga). There he has a few cows, pigs and some plants. He is retired and he lives there with my mom. My mom loves to cook and show the Brazilian culture to foreigners.

    ME

    I am an English teacher and language school owner - BlueBanana. I have lived one year in Ireland and 3 months in Germany. I am a Bachelor of Tourism and a M.B.A. in International Business. I studied my Bachelor in Florianopolis/SC and my M.B.A. in Ipatinga.

    A BIT ABOUT IPATINGA

    Ipatinga is a lovely city with 250 thousand inhabitants. The region is known for its 'easy going' way of living. Many elder engineering are living here. The city has a good infrastructure and a low crime rate. The State of Minas Gerais is known for its cute accent, AMAZING food, fresh fruits and the best coffee of the whole universe (of all galaxy). I hate coffee though :)

    THINGS TO DO

    The neighborhood is calm and perfect for long walks. The night life is also really nice with plenty of options since typical Brazilian bars to fancy international restaurants. In Ipatinga you can find a lovely park where you can go for a walk or go bike riding.

    At my father's farm you can also ride a horse or go for a walk. The nature is beautiful and you can also take some time to enjoy the landscape.

    THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

    My mom and daddy do not smoke. Me either. My father drinks shit beers, maybe he does not know that other beers exist...

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION: I CAN NOT HOST COUPLES, SORRY!
