My name is Margaux and I am a French girl based in Panama. After 5 years living in Latin America, I decided to start this blog Marence to express myself and share some pieces of my everyday life. My education & job have given me the opportunity to live in Mexico, Argentina, Chile and Panama. And, I know that it is always complicated to arrive in a new city without knowing all the city tips. Thats why, here you will find some pieces of advice, thoughts, my favorite places and some posts on everything I like in life.
