About

IMG_1168More about me?

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I love learning new languages – after English and German I started with a bit of Korean (this is my name: 플로렌치아). Besides, I enjoy reading, knitting, watching TV series  (The Good Wife, The Good Fight, The Wire, Sherlock, Luther, Friends, Bron/Broen…) and photography.

We are inclined to view our own behavior as normal rather than as ‘cultural’, culture is an abstraction we reserve for describing the (sometimes strange) behavior of others” (Wolcott, 2010, p. 95)
