Each of us views the world through our own “cultural lenses” created by us through our own personal knowledge and experiences, or imposed on us by our community, and society.
These lenses are called “Cultures”. Before embarking on the Culture journey; the definition of culture and its effect on our thoughts, behaviors, attitudes, perceptions, beliefs and actions should be clarified.
One thing we all have in common is a passion for Argentina and giving others the opportunity to explore this fascinating country, language and culture.
