I do envy Spanish having such a beautiful building as the food market, even you do not like cooking, just love to go in, and buy stuff and have a go , British Government should invest this kind of market in every small city or town, I think
Iberico ham were hung on the ceiling not only in the shops also every bar, very expensive but melt in your mouth, we all loved it with cold glass of beer.
Drink culture in Spain is so enviable , all of bars have full of people with small glass of beer and tapas,they do drink little, eat little and talk a lot and carry on like this for whole evening but actually they do not drink a lot, just happy to chat and laugh and most of all they drink with food/tapas, it is very healthy way of drinking, we visit a lots of bars, we never seen any drunkenness by youngsters or oldies , even some bars are just in front of church but all very civilised, sitting on the church steps, beer in hand and engaging in deep conversation, they just know how enjoy the life !!
Should we allow only half pint to the young people and try to avoid a pint glass , in U K?, big is not better always, we should educate and promote less drink culture. That's only my opinion. or campaign for ,drink but eat some food like tapas or even chips!!!.
We stumbled in to the tiny bar, cooking Churo in the morning,and afternoon. oh,boy, it was so good, crunch but light batter with bitter chocolate sauce, the bar man shout like fish auctioneer, Chuuuuuuuro to the old guy who seemed frying only this chuuuuuuuuuuro for 100years!!!, it was perfect !!!
