About Me

ABOUT ME

About myself... what can I say? You should meet me =) I can only describe some aspects of my life. I was born in Uruguay 29 years ago, a little country with the name of a river =) :

Since my 16s I've lived in Valencia, which has become my home, but I also lived in Budapest for one year and I also lived in Seoul for 4 months. I think it really doesn´t matter where you are, what really matters is the people around you. =)
