Industry Science
Location Bucureşti, Romania
Introduction I'm interested in social matters and culture. I have an interest in music, cinema, but also in the world we live in now or shall live in the near future. I have the hope of trying to write only on the matters where I actually can make a point. I like writing much more than speaking, and traveling. I guess I'm addicted to good books, red wines, movies and selected music. If I truly want something, I'll go for it to the moon and back. And you are welcomed on my blog.
Interests sociology, religion, culture, interculturality, anthropology, Romania, Europe
