First Thoughts

Well as I arrived a few weeks late to this class I was not involved in the decision-making of the blog´s topic. Luckily I’m a good friend of Gabe and Andrea and I know exactly what they were thinking. I am also an american citizen studying my career abroad and it is a big change. Let’s face it, life in Spain is quite unlike life in the States.

First of all we have the ´siesta´ from 2 to 4. Which sometimes can mean 1.30 to 5. Oh yeah, and don´t forget that government offices and banks dont open at all after 2. This basically means that everything closes and you cant do anything other than eat, sleep, or watch TV. Then we have the amazing customer service which I dare not critisize.

Football is probably one of the most popular things in Spain, but watch out what jersey you have on because depending on what city you’re in, you might get killed. There’s no such thing as the late-night menu so you can forget about taco bell or any fastfood after midnight because its all closed. Get used to kebabs.

The one thing the spaniards are good at is partying. Clubs here close at 7 in the morning on a saturday night, sunday morning. They say that we americans drink more but sometimes between botellon and the all-night parties, I must beg to differ.
