- [James] What is really like to live in Spain?
Is it all at long lunches with wine, tapas every night,
late night, siestas all day,
and flamenco and bullfighting on the weekends?
- [Yoly] Keep watching and we'll tell you
which are the cliches of living in Spain are true
and which are just cliches.
- Hey guys, my name's James Blick
- And I am Yolanda Martin.
- And welcome to Spain Reveal.
- This channel's all about helping you explore Spain
like a local.
And welcome to our home,
this is the first time we've ever done a video in our home
so we've decided to invite you in
given that well, we're doing a video today
about life in Spain and living in Spain.
So it seemed appropriate to film it here.
- Yeah, so there are a lot cliches about what life is like
And we wanna give you a little dose of reality.
Don't worry, we're not going to ruin your dreams
about living in Spain.
- This is an amazing place to live
and I feel so lucky to live in Spain.
But, if you're thinking about moving to this country,
or you just want to feel better about the fact
that you're not maybe missing out
on as many things as you think you might be missing out on
then this is the video for you.
So we're going to go through 13 topics
that we've put together.
And I've also got questions
that come from my Instagram followers
and Twitter followers
about certain cliches
about what they think life might be like in Spain.
And we're gonna tackle those.
So, first cliche;
that Spain has an incredible work/life balance.
This is a comment from one of my Instagram friends,
Arlin6 said my husband and I are curios to know
what the work/life balance is in Spain?
Now what do you think?
Why don't you tell me?
You've lived in New Zealand together.
We lived there.
I've lived in Spain so we've had the Anglo-Saxon experience,
we've had the Spanish experience,
what do you think the work/life balance is like in Spain?
- What I would say that in Spain people work to live
rather than live to work.
I think people talk about work less.
You know, I remember when we were in New Zealand
and your typical question at a dinner party
is like what do you do?
And I remember coming back to Spain when we moved back
and I would ask that to people that I would meet.
And they would a little bit kinda you know-
- It's true.
- Like oh, we're having fun.
We're not here to talk about work.
- It's true.
If you say to a friend at a dinner party how's work?
It just feels weird to ask that question.
But generally I think people are very much more conscious
in this country.
Say New Zealand, the States, the U.K
of maintaining a work life balance.
People appreciate the difference between one and the other.
Family is really important.
I remember when Yoly and I first met,
now you're a freelancer, like all freelancers
you work everyday of the week constantly.
When we first met and we were living in New Zealand,
I remember something came up
and I said to Yoly well maybe you could do that job
on a Sunday.
And you were like, I will not work on a Sunday.
- That was just, you couldn't.
- Oh, those golden times.
- Obviously, people work on Sundays in this country.
But yeah, there's certainly a division
between those two things.
And that does generate a healthier work/life balance.
Okay so if we have this kind of better
and healthier attitude to work
and maybe there's better work/life balance
in this country,
does that mean we don't work that much in Spain?
- We actually work very long hours.
This country, people work from 9 A.M to often 8 P.M
so, and why is that?
There's a lot of different issues.
There's one called, what's it called?
- Prettismo, have this idea that you have to be there
when your boss is there.
It's like, you know, instead of focusing on being productive
or you know just getting the stuff done,
it's more like my boss is there so I better be there.
- So you literally have to sit at your desk.
There's this tradition of sitting at your desk
because the boss is sitting at a desk
to show you're working there.
There's also the tradition of longer lunches.
Now we're going to talk about that,
and how that longer lunches is a bit of a cliche.
But, all these things compile to create
this very very long work days
which impact on family life.
So we have issues around people being tired
because they are working until very late,
they get home at 8 P.M, 8:30, 9:00.
They have to squeeze in their family time.
- It's even lowering the birth rate potentially.
Our long working hours.
So, on the one hand I think it's interesting.
We do have this attitude
that's a little more work/life balance,
like focus on life and don't let work dominate completely.
But in other ways, work does dominate just purely
in the hours.
- And the idea that we have is
we want the distinction and that balance
but we actually don't manage it very well.
And one really interesting point
just under this is that Spain is actually
in the wrong time zone.
We should be in the same time zone as London.
But what happened is in 1940, Franco the dictator
changed the clocks up to Berlin time
in a show of solidarity with the Nazi government.
Ever since then, we've been in the wrong time zone.
So what that meant is that the clocks shifted forward
So when people were having lunch at 1 P.M,
suddenly they were having lunch at 2 P.M
and so when people started having dinner at 8 P.M,
suddenly they were having dinner at 9 P.M.
Everything shifted later.
But the work day still started at the same time.
- And so you've got start at the same time
that just got dragged out an hour longer
and we're still dealing with that.
All right onto the next cliche.
This is a country where we do stay up very late.
If we're working longer, we're actually sleeping less.
So here in Spain, how much less do we sleep
than the European Union average?
- It's about one hour less, so you know.
So, you know bags under our eyes big time.
- Bags under our eyes.
I hope you can't see them here.
But we do sleep about one hour less
than other European countries.
Part of it is because we're getting home so late.
Because of that long work day.
It means primetime TV starts a lot later,
- Sorta 9:30, 10:00 at night.
Because people are at work until later.
And then you've gotta squeeze in family time.
- By the time you get to bed, exactly.
Dinner it's like 1:00 P.M, sorry 1:00 A.M.
That would be really late, 1:00 P.M,
through the next day.
But one of the things that I thought was really interesting
was the statistic, or this fact
is that a few years back,
there was a children's cooking show
like Master Chef for kids or something like that.
And in the final, it finished at 1:30 A.M
and there was still six hundred thousand
Spanish children watching it at 1:30 A.M
and there was this kind of hoo-ha.
But, there have been examples
of T.V shows for kids that go well past midnight.
And so we've got this culture here.
I find it a really hard country
to be an early riser, I love the mornings.
But it's really hard to make that compatible
with the social life.
And well, when you were a kid Yoly
what time did you go to bed?
- Well, I remember about 10:00 p.m, 11:00 P.M.
- At what age are we talking?
- I was like eight years old.
You, know yeah.
- I know it's hard to remember,
I remember battling for getting a few, half an hour.
- At eight or nine, I was probably in bed by 8:00 or 9:00.
I have no idea, but certainly not 10:00 or 11:00.
- And I was getting up early in the morning, of course.
- Exactly, sleep deprived.
You've come out okay on the other end.
I saw a great little thing around going to bed late
was comparing our mothers.
My mother goes to bed in New Zealand at about 10:00 or so.
And what about your mom?
- My mom more or less like midnight.
1:00 A.M many nights, actually.
That was normal.
- So, exactly.
So really has that culture of staying up late.
Okay cliche number four.
That Spaniards have really long lunches
with wine everyday.
Yoly, do you have a long lunch, a three hour lunch
with wine everyday?
- No, no, never ever really.
- Never ever, wow.
Maybe once and a while.
We do it now and again.
But maybe on the weekends.
- Yeah, I mean look.
Lunch is the main meal here.
So that's a really important thing.
I remember when we met,
as well as Yoly's saying she wouldn't work on a Sundays,
I managed to get rid of that one.
What was the other thing you told me
when I suggested we have sandwich for lunch?
- Well the idea of having a sandwich for lunch
was pretty depressing.
- Exactly, cause why?
- Good food, you want good food.
You know, you want.
You know, even if you go to the office
you're not going to eat a sandwich
while your working at your desk.
- You're going to bring a Tupperware from home.
You know, maybe with some cooked food
that you're going to heat up in a microwave.
Now Yoly, you work mainly from home.
- I know about in the Devour office for example,
Devour Tour office,
people aren't eating sandwiches over their keyboards.
We generally sit together for lunch.
And people have leftovers, food that they've prepared.
It's food that they'll heat up
so there's a lot of hot food at lunch.
And we will take an hour, generally, more or less.
So I think there is still that sense that lunch is important
but it's certainly not three hours lunches everyday
Obviously on the weekend though,
we do love a big long lunch.
And there's a concept called the sobre mesa.
So what is the sobre mesa?
- So, well after dessert you know maybe you have coffee
and maybe well that's when they kinda mixed drinks
come out as well.
So people will have a Cubata or a
- Like a rum and a coke or something.
And you know, it can last for like one hour, two hours.
Just kinda sitting there at the table just talking,
Sobre mesa means on the table.
- On the table.
- And it's literally a period
where lunch might finish at 4:00. the actual eating,
and you'll sit there for hours just talking.
And the sun will go down.
Cliche number five.
Spain is wine country.
This is a yes and no thing right, Yoly?
- Yes, yeah exactly.
- Yes and no.
- In terms of consumptions.
- Or production, I guess.
- Exactly, that's how you gotta look at it.
So look, we have the largest covering of vines in the world
you can see this behind Yoly's head,
our Spanish wine country map.
So we have the largest covering of vines in the world
and one of the three top producers in the world.
But we are not even in the top five, ten, or twenty
I have a list here of countries of countries
that drink more wine than us.
Germany, Sweden, Portugal, France, Switzerland,
They all drink more wine than us.
So what is up?
What are we drinking, are we drinking water Yoly?
- Well, we're drinking lots of beer.
Probably more than water.
This is really a beer country.
- Yes, it is.
So you know people go out and you know they have a Cana,
they have Canas, they have small beers.
They don't have wine too much.
I mean it's kinda of, taking off a little bit
and I think the consumption of wine is increasing.
- But no.
- It's true.
Actually wine consumption rose last year
for the first time in a long time.
But if you compare it to say 20, 30 years ago
it's way down.
And people are drinking beer.
You go into the bars, people are drinking little Canas.
- Everyone is having beer.
And what's interesting is just to look at these stats
that I have here
is if we're in the top 30 of wine drinker,
not even the top 20.
We are the 12th biggest beer drinker in the world.
I curiously Libya is the second wine.
But anyway, I do trust the stat.
Anybody been to Libya, let us know in the comments.
What's going on with the beer there?
But yeah, the 12th biggest beer country.
So yes we are a wine country in it's production,
but not in terms of drinking.
But, in this household wine drinkers.
- All the way.
- Okay, cliche number six.
Spaniards go out for tapas every night of the week.
It was funny, I know these sound a bit crazy.
But it was funny,
in giving a lot of tours with Devour Tours,
a lot of people have said to me
my god, the buyers are so busy in Spain
you must be out every night of the week eating tapas
and hanging out and we're not doing that.
But there is something, there is an undercurrent of truth
in here, isn't there?
- And what is it Yoly?
That something about the fact
that this is a culture where we don't sit at home so much,
we go out into the squares and the bars.
- Yeah, we love being in the street, out on the street.
You know my parents go for walks everyday.
You know, everyday it's like a religion.
I remember being in New Zealand and it was, I don't know.
It was rainy and maybe I was busy working at home.
I just felt like I needed to be out in the street, you know?
- And not driving our car, you know.
Because there's a lot of driving.
No, no, no.
I just wanted to walk, I needed to use my legs.
- I knew we were talking about doing tapas every night,
but I guess what we're saying is the bars look very busy,
the streets look very busy
because we go out into the street to socialize.
- And so it's a big deal to invite someone over to your home
in this country.
- Yeah, we don't do it that often.
- We don't do it that often.
If someone's like hey let's meet up,
you'll go and meet in a bar.
Or maybe meet in a square if you're younger
and you can't go to bars yet.
And so you'll also see people go for the paseo,
which is the afternoon walk.
Couples will go out, friends will go out.
And that they will meet their friends in the square.
You'll see often a lot of elderly people sitting in squares
They're not hanging out in their living room.
- Yeah, yeah.
- A really really important part of the culture.
And if you do invite people over,
it sorta feels a bit weird sometimes.
They don't quite know where to put themselves, right?
- It's right.
We just don't have that culture
of I don't know, dinner parties,
we just don't do it so much.
- It's true.
I remember we had a dinner party
we'd been in Spain for a couple years
and I thought I'd invite all of our friends
who were my acquired friends through Yoly
over for Christmas lunch.
I think it was Christmas dinner.
- And it felt weird.
- We pushed through.
- We pushed through but then we got out
and went to the bar afterwards
once dinner was over.
It just felt very constrained.
So I think yes, we are out often.
We'll go out and the beauty of tapas
is it's very fluid.
So, you might go out and you have your paseo
and maybe you'll just stop in at a bar and have a beer
and have a nibble on something.
But then you'll go home and have dinner.
- So I think in a place like New Zealand,
there's more intention around going out.
- It's like are we going out?
Are we going out to dinner?
Here it just kinda happens.
And it doesn't have to be a full night out.
And the kids are allowed in bars
so you'll see children in bars.
So you don't have to get a babysitter
if you're gonna go out for a walk
or go to bars.
So, we're not eating tapas every night in the bars.
But we are out in the streets a lot.
Okay, cliche number seven.
Spain is hot all year now.
Now Trevor Haxim sent me this tweet.
He said, wow, he said it's not verbatim
but effectively he moved to Andalucia
to Southern Spain some years back
and he was really looking forward
to enjoying the year-round warm weather.
And he wound up freezing his proverbial off
over winter cause he just wasn't ready for it.
So look, this country is not hot all year round.
We're sitting here in Madrid right now
and outside it's probably eight degrees.
- Right, it's cold?
- It gets cold.
It gets definitely cold in winter, you know.
I mean it is kinda warmer in Andalucia in the south.
So, you know, the winter's definitely get cold.
Houses though are not so prepared.
Even Andalucians seem to think that it's not that cold,
but in some houses are not very prepared, you know,
for that cold weather.
- And look, we are blessed with incredible weather
in large parts of this country, that's true.
You can plan a picnic three weeks from today
in the middle of summer, and it's not gonna rain probably.
It would be a freak occurrence.
Whereas coming from New Zealand
where the weather is so changeable,
you can't plan with that sort of certainty.
So we do and there's places like Malaga
which just the sunniest city in Europe.
And obviously the North of Spain,
green Spain, Caliphate Estudias
those regions are a little like New Zealand.
The bask country,
they are rainy they get, they are cooler.
- They are more unpredictable as well in terms of weather.
You know, like summer you know it can be rainy in summer.
- So I think just be aware that obviously the regionality
of this country means that there is different weather
all over the country.
- But, yeah.
We're not here on the equator guys.
We're blessed with great weather,
but it's not just across the board hot days
all 365 days of the year.
Okay, myth number eight.
Struggling to do that with my fingers.
Not that agile.
Spain is cheap, cheap, cheap.
There's this, I think impression that this country
is super cheap.
And it is in some ways.
I mean food and wine relatively speaking.
Certainly wine is cheap.
And eating out might seem a bit cheaper, right?
But it's not all like that right Yoly?
- No, you know like, cities are exspensive I guess.
There's an imbalance between rent and salaries.
So you know rent is actually quite exspensive
compared to what people actually earn.
Yeah so it's not that cheap actually.
For Spaniards anyway.
- For Spaniards yeah.
I have some statistics here,
which pair with your own country.
It might feel like a cheap country
if you're coming here
and you're not renting obviously cause you're on vacation.
And you are just eating and drinking.
And yeah, I think the fact that the alcohol is really cheap
and the wine is cheap.
I think that really flows
through a lot of people's experience.
Cause when you're in Spain all day, you drink a lot of wine.
So, it's overrepresented I think a little bit
in people's vacations.
But here's a statistic.
So, Spanish workers earn an average of 23 thousand euros
with the most frequent wage or salary
being about 16,500 euros a year.
So pretty low compared to say France or Germany
or perhaps the States or the U.K.
But for Spaniards it's not super cheap.
It might feel cheap in some aspects
when you come and travel here.
you're gonna have to put four fingers up to help me.
Cliche number 9.
Spaniards are always late.
Now, this is quite a complex one.
I know that when I am going to meet someone in this country
I do feel like if it's a 3:00 P.M meeting,
it depends a little bit,
but I feel like I might about have a five minute window
or so where I don't have to say
hey I'm running late.
Whereas it's true that if I'm dealing
with an Anglo-Saxon person,
I have that obligation a little bit
to send a WhatsApp message
if I'm going to be two minutes late.
I'll be like hey I'm gonna be two minutes late
but I think-
- Now if you do that with a Spaniard
they're going to think you're a psychopath.
- They'll think you're nuts
if you say I'm running two minutes late.
So, but when we're talking about this cliche,
and you're a little conflicted on this one side.
So let's talk it out.
- I actually think that we Spaniards actually sometimes
believe in our own cliches.
You know, I kinda find myself thinking
yeah we are kinda late all the time.
But then my reality is that you know
last night were meeting these friends
and we were the ones that were kinda of a little bit late.
And you know we got there three minutes late.
- And they were both there.
- They were both there so.
The reality is that we might not be so unpunctual.
No, I think that's true.
I think this might also touch on a little bit
something we're going to deal with in a cliche
in a few more cliches
which is about us being a little bit more relaxed
in this country and less uptight about certain things.
But generally, yeah there might be a little bit wiggle room
on the time.
But it's not this crazy,
like hey I'm a half hour late but nobody cares.
Not at all.
Okay so we have four more cliches to go.
We're on cliche number 10.
This one I can do with both hands.
I have that dexterity.
Thank God, to hold up two hands.
So this one is all Spaniards love flamenco.
Yoly, you're a huge flamenco expert and fan,
I'm a fan.
But this came through Corky Brent.
She sent a message through instagram
and she said I thought I would always hear Spanish guitar
at every corner being played from beautiful courtyards.
So, here's the thing.
Is there a Spanish guitar?
Is there a flamenco guitar on every corner of the street
and how we all listening to flamenco in this country
and all dancing flamenco and all this type of stuff.
- I wish.
But no the reality it's not like that.
Actually there's a little bit of an untied flamenco attitude
It's not that popular.
A little bit more popular in the south.
Which is where it comes from.
More people are into it.
But you know, Madrid not so much.
People think it's kind of a traditional backward low-class
I was no different.
- Yeah, actually when we moved to New Zealand 10 years ago
you were not into flamenco at all.
- I was not, no no no.
My music was punk rock and rock and roll
and music from the sixties.
And anything that was coming from The United States
But then I got a little homesick
by year two of being there.
And I needed that dose of Spanishness.
So I started listening to flamenco for the first time
in my life.
Even taking dance classes over there.
- We actually went and saw flamenco live in Oakland
in New Zealand both for the first time.
The first time we both saw flamenco was together
in New Zealand.
And we went to dance classes together.
I dropped out after about like four classes
but one of the things that this means
is if you go and see a flamenco show in a Tablow
there are going to be other tourists around you.
Cause this wonderful world-class artists
need tourism to survive.
Because the flamenco venue are not filling up
- No, no, no.
There's just not enough fans.
There's just not enough of us.
- Here people might know a few dance moves
or something like that.
But they maybe don't love the muse, the singing as much.
- The singing is more of a harder to like I guess.
It sounds hard for our ears.
Guttural, the rhythms are very different
to you know like pop music.
So yeah people are big fan of the guitar and the dancing
kind of more immediately than the singing.
- Cliche number 11.
Yoly, you're a huge bullfighting fan, right?
No, not at all, not at all.
It's actually quite unpopular as well.
You know amongst younger people.
I don't know, my age.
- Well I have a statistic here
so between seven out of ten
16-35 year olds are against bullfighting
in this country.
So that's a really broad young age group.
And most of them 70 percent are against it.
Now I mean you've grown up with bullfighting
- I grew up with it, it was on T.V almost every day
during the season.
And I've seen a lot
because my dad used to enjoy watching them on T.V.
- But you've never been to one?
- I've never been to one live.
Like, I have no interest really.
To see it.
- I've been to two as a curious ex-pat when I arrived here
I went to a couple.
I'm against it.
As a lot of people of our generation
are against it.
Obviously there are still on particularly in Madrid.
And in the South of Spain.
You won't see them in Contaloey,
you won't see them in the Canary Islands.
But what will happen to it do you think?
Do you think it'll disappear?
- I think, it certainly is fading away.
And probably disappear.
And you know the animal rights should be above all of that.
- Exactly, above the entertainment factor.
I think one of the things that will probably happen
to bullfighting is just financially
their will not be the money in it to keep going
the same way it is.
And even we're noticing, if you read statistics,
there's a drop in the number of bullfights every year.
Because if there is not ticket buyers,
then nobody is going to make money out of it.
So nobody was gonna want to put on a bullfight.
It is a political football, bullfighting in this country.
So one thing to pity if you've got a conservative government
or a liberal government
than bullfighting is one of those things
that's always kept to the supporters.
So you've got for example you've got bullfighting
under the previous Socialist government
was banned from national T.V
and then the Conservative government
put it back on T.V.
But it is a little surreal.
We were in a bar a couple months back
and it was more traditional bar
in quite a conservative neighborhood.
And there was bullfighting on the T.V
and I was looking at it
and there's an animal dying on T.V.
And I was like man,
it's interesting how things can be so engrained
that you don't actually look at them
through the lens of like
there is somebody killing an animal for entertainment
If that didn't exist and you were like
let's just do this thing, this sounds great
everybody would be like oh my god!
But it's just still there.
And it still becomes, people grab onto it.
Whether they're for or against
as a sense of identity of your politics
and things like that.
- So I think it will evolve
and what I think might happen
is that it evolves into something
where the bull is not killed or tortured.
And maybe jumping over the bull or something like that.
I don't think it will disappear completely.
Cliche number 12.
I'm gonna give up the whole hands thing,
because it's getting very complicated.
But here we go.
Most Spaniards are good Church-going Catholics.
Now I think the image of this country
Particularly driven by the Dictatorship
that we had from 39 to the mid-seventies.
So this is still the image
that a lot of people have.
And when we moved into our first apartment here,
I think there was a picture of the virgin
hanging above the bed.
The virgin Mary I should say.
And obviously the religious artifacts.
It's really a generational thing.
And I have a statistic here
that I think is really, really interesting.
So, 70 percent of Spaniards still call themselves Catholics.
That's down from 90 percent in 1978.
1978 was the year that we became a Democracy.
So it's 70 percent call them Catholic.
That's pretty high, right?
- I mean do you call yourself a Catholic.
- Uh, no.
Actually I have de registered from the Catholic Church.
- So Yoly has apostatarde we say in Spanish.
I'm not sure what the word is in English.
It's probably like apostatized or something like that.
To get taken off the list.
Because you're baptized, you're on the list.
You have to go through some administrative work.
- It was a little bit of paperwork,
but fairly simple.
- Fairly simple.
It would have been harder a few years back, right?
- Yes it was.
- So you're not officially counted as a Catholic anymore.
Oh my god, does that mean that you're a heathen?
I'm married to a heathen?
So okay 70 percent call themselves Catholic,
but that's a little misleading statistic.
Because 60 percent of that 70 percent,
get your calculators out,
say they almost never go to mass.
So you've got 70 percent saying yeah I'm a Catholic.
But most of them never go to mass.
So they're not practicing Catholics.
So what does that tell us?
Does that say something about the fact
that Catholicism is still strong as a tradition?
- Tradition, yeah.
- People aren't active necessarily.
- Yeah I call it like a social club really.
People just do it out of tradition, you know?
Even people that has never like in years
gone to mass on Sunday.
And then you know they get married
and all of a sudden they have a baby.
And they baptize the baby.
And you're like really?
So it's actually Sunday today and we did not go to mass.
Sorry if that disappoints anyone.
Okay our last cliche.
Unlucky number 13.
Spaniards are highly passionate people.
This is the country of Picasso, of Dali, of Penelope Cruz.
Yoly, tell me.
Are you a wonderfully passionate mwah kinda people
- Do you need to ask?
- How dare I ask that question.
- I think I guess, we are very welcoming people.
We are warm.
I think we are very warm.
I guess that we are kinda easy going.
Just with an open heart.
I mean of course this is a massive generalization.
You know people of all kinds in this country.
But I guess we do have a bit of a open attitude
towards someone that is going to approach us
in the street.
- I think that's right.
I mean we're talking about passion,
we're not all running around like crazy people.
Our passion really converts
into an openness, a friendliness, a warmth.
The bars are very loud because the people are talking a lot
because love to talk in this country.
- I have especially a loud voice.
- Yoly has a perfect voice for cutting through
and getting your order in a tapas bar
when there is a lot of noise.
I know when I moved here and you're meeting people
for the first time
people are just friendly and open.
They're not super closed down.
Again as you said they're generalizations.
But they're is an openness,
a willingness to have a conversation.
Say how are you and a smile and things like that.
So it's a wonderful place where
you can walk into a bar and start chatting to someone.
And it's true that they might have a lot of struggles
going on in the background.
But they will often wear it with a smile.
Rightly or wrongly in some ways.
But you know people will strike up conversations
very very easily.
And so I think that easiness does feel like a form
Yep, I'm gonna call Spain as passionate
in that sense.
- All right.
- If you come here,
learn some of the lingo.
Because the ability to kind of have
a wonderful experience here,
if you just know a few words,
people will engage with you.
And that's what's so wonderful.
And I'm sure there are other countries
where that is a little harder to do.
But here, it's really easy.
So learn a few words, come and engage with
all these wonderful passionate Spaniards.
Guys, what did we miss?
What did we get wrong?
If you live here, if you're a Spaniard
and you're like oh my god
I can't believe I've said these terrible things
about my culture.
If you're an ex-pat and you have a different experience,
