This paper is a reflection of a concept that becomes a central
concern in the study of anthropology, namely culture. The
concept of culture is interesting to be debated because the
author assumes that the meaning of culture is rich and highly
dependent on the paradigm of the person or group of people,
who interpret it. By using the memory of life experiences and
supported by every day observation as the data, the author aims
to understand what culture is. Nevertheless, the life trajectories
that are still being experienced today still leave the question
about the culture itself.

Keywords: life experience, reflection, culture, autoethnography
