The “job” of the Nomad

Hi, my name is Andrés Arriaga or Alish Zenzejul (my Mayan name), I’m a Nomad and a modern wandering Yishu Wuhang monk (more info here)  and I am ussually on-the-go (sometimes I find a place to stay long periods of time, even years) but ussually I move a lot, but currently I’m in China for some months.
