Differences between Spain and USA

A travel blog entry by caseybennett18 on Jun 13, 2014

After living in Spain for a week, it's hard not to notice differences from the United States.

After that, we walked around and saw some sort of political demonstration happening in a plaza near our hostel. We stopped ...

Miscellenea from Espana

... every bit of flesh apart from my feet. Not because I was too lazy or fat to bend down that far; I just assumed that by the time the sunshine hits the ground it doesn’t have the same force. In the same way that standing far away from a birthday cake means it is harder to blow out the candles. Apparently sunshine and wind work differently – or so I discovered when my feet turned into giant barbecued prawns at the end of the day. The Spanish remedy is to put vinegar on sunburn ...
