I am a little confused, and I'm not doing the rose tinted thing as someone suggested earlier for some reason, but the Spain these people describe just doesn't seem like the Spain I live in

Anyway, what were we saying?

The only plus side to being a mod is we dont see all the adverts!

Maybe you mean you can't find the ingredients to make what * you think * of as a nice meal. personally I find British food bland compaired to what there is on offer here (coast or campo). My family and friends love it when we take them to Spanish restaurants or cafes and we order habas con jamon, morcilla de Burgos, almejas, salad with nuts and goats cheese etc.etc.etc. Some of which have said on their first visit, I don't like garlic etc. etc. I just stopped telling them what they where eating until after that said 'oh that is delicious' finding now most of them totally converted to eating Spanish food at any oppertunity they can.

BTW, it is amazing what you can put together in minutes just even from a short walk in the campo... and I am not a cook but I love my food.

Of course it doesn't matter. I'm just saying you wouldn't find a Spanish person eating just a sandwich for lunch. You've had a house here for a long time so I'm just surprised you haven't noticed that. It's just different eating habits.
Don't worry about it, some people just don't understand there is another world out there, they travel thinking and expect that everything should be the same as where they came from!

Sadly European countries are/will be loosing their cultures and uniqueness, things that adding to making travelling even more interesting... all because some people think that all countries in Europe should be the same... boring! where is the fun in going to Italy, stopping for lunch and expecting Steak and Kidney pie and mash?
