Viva Espana!

I have been meaning to go to Spain ever since.  Being a Filipino I have been accustomed to some Spanish cultures and even some spanish terms.  I actually thought I can understand the language since most of my native terms are derived from espanol… but I was wrong.  I was assigned in Madrid for a short period and I have no clue what they are saying 🙂  I think its because of the speed…

Madrid and Barcelona are two of the nice cities in Europe.  Madrid is known for its very old historical places and Barcelona is a combination of both old and new.  Food is also something not to be ignored… the famous tapas, the delicious paella and a lot more.  But one thing that I cannot forget is the longggggg siesta.  Siesta is the term to describe a short nap taken in the early afternoon.  I havent seen people sleeping though but I have experienced having a very long lunch.  Another thing to remember when in Spain is not to go to dinner earlier than 9pm because you definitely cannot…
