How is your weekend going? I hope you’re doing well and you are having a lot of fun!
As you remember last week I wrote a few things about Spain, and I explained a few stereotypes. I talked about Flamenco and bullfighting, so I still have a few tings to tell you guys.
Let´s start with the “fiesta”: Well, we like to party a lot, but not everybody in Spain likes to party…And what I experienced is that Europeans in general like to party like us. So I don´t find us totally different..Maybe the only thing is that we usually go out later and of course we come back home during the morning (For example is normal to go out around 12pm or 1am…and come back at 7am or 8am)
Another interesting thing about fiestas is that almost every city, town or village has its own fiesta at least once a year.
Dark hair and dark eyes: It´s not the first time I read something like “Spaniards have dark eyes, long eyelashes and wavy dark hair, therefore they are very magnetic and sexy”. Well, we have to think that not everybody looks like Antonio Banderas or Penélope Cruz. And of course, not everybody has dark eyes or hair, because there are also blonde people and so people with green or blue eyes too.
Lazy and untidy people: I think that’s the worst stereotype ever for us. I know a lot of people in Spain who are obsessed with cleanliness.There are lazy people everywhere, but Spaniards work hard like everybody does, and in Europe Spanish workers are really welcome.
This is my particular vision, and probably maybe you don´t agree. So don´t hesitate on comment, giving your opinion or asking whatever you want to know.
Have a nice Sunday everybody.
