I’m Raquel, 20yo from Portugal.

I speak portuguese and english fluently and just a little bit of french and norwegian. I really want to learn mandarin or japanese. (As far was wanting goes I do want both, but one must be realistic.)

I’m studying jazz piano at university, so obviously my music taste starts there. I love Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans and Bernardo Sassetti. 

Besides that I also listen to Yellow Magic Orchestra, Haruomi Hosono, Miharu Koshi, Akiko Yano, Tatsuro Yamashita, M.I.A., Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak, Kamasi Washington, Thundercat, James Blake, Beck, Bjork, Tom Waits, Gorillaz, Blur, Buena Vista Social Club, Earth, Wind and Fire, Kraftwerk, (…) (also kpop but shh.)

I’m really interested in cinema and my favorite directors are Wong Kar-Wai and Bong Joon-Ho. My favorite tv shows are Fargo, True Detective, Better Call Saul and Twin Peaks.

I’m mostly looking for snail mail but emailing is fine as well. A penpal from Asia would be ideal but a penpal from anywhere else is cool too.

My email is raquelrpimpao@gmail.com and my tumblr is here.
