Images of Spain

I have just had a fish dish which was drowned in oil and the scallops were overdone. Still, the ice cream was nice. We have had the mobile library in Spain with the free wifi and the biker festival at the weekend. All great stuff. Now the scene is being set for the local bull fighting “fun” (see pic). Spectator blood sport is not a nice vibe. It is only when you see all the family queueing up to indulge in the fun that you realise how distasteful the whole thing is. Of course this is the country where black players playing for England receive monkey chants from the paying Spanish public. So perhaps I should not be surprised. I just am surprised that such barbaric past times are part of civil society.  By the way Spain is going through some dire economic times. In some areas youth unemployment is close to 50%.
