Nicolás Guglielmone was born in Tucumán, in Tafí del Valle. At less than a year, his family decided to move to the city of Villa Allende, where he lived until the age of 40 . At that age he had acquired enough tune and love for fernet, that is, he earned Cordovan nationality. But life had other plans for him. He left the city of his wanderings and memories, to travel and settle in an unexpected corner of the world. Today, from Manila, the capital of the Philippines, tells its story.
Despite being born in Tucumán, Nicolás says he is “good Cordovan, because Cordovan is born where he wants”. In the midst of the decision to move, and start a new life, world quarantine began . Now, with this particular situation, he tells how daily life is carried out on that Pacific island.
Gugliemone tells about the great allies in the middle of this adventure. Because he had to learn a new culture and embrace it because the Philippines became his new home. Unlike Cordoba and its sierras, where the best allies are fernet and roast, Nicolás says that “the fan is a great friend, because you have fans everywhere. You have rice for breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner.” In addition, he invited all of the summer team to inhabit this beautiful island. He says: “And those who don't like winter, here you can spend a full year in t-shirt, shorts and buttonholes and there is no jacket.”
