Back in the nineties, I graduated from Radboud University Nijmegen, with a master's degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology. Instead of traveling to the outskirts of Africa I chose to do my field research in a notorious town at the Costa Brava of Catalonia, Lloret de Mar. In the media, this place was portrayed as a modern version of Sodom and Gomorra in which youngsters went berserk on sex and drugs. My thesis concerned the cultural significance of this happening. How do adolescents really behave? And what does it mean?
