When Agostiny has free time, he loves to walk and to play soccer. Also, he loves to eat one of his favorite dishes which is the delicious Pachamanca. With effort, he studied the career of Tourism, especially because his parents supported him despite their limited economic resources.

Every day, Agostiny works as a tour guide. He works about ten hours a day and can serve up to three customers a day since the tours to tourist sites take a long time. He thinks he is doing well in his job because he is kind to customers and also very charismatic.
