Cats on the stakeout
These are excerpts from interesting conversations I had with people in Madrid and Barcelona.
"That one you see over there is Martha Sanchez. In this terminal you can always find low budget celebrities."
"Is it true you got lost? What is it your first time in town? Yeah, we usually pick up all our passengers in this bar."
"Well, actually we find the way you Latin people talk very funny, it's just strange."
"When [Real] Madrid plays at the final, Barcelona fans watch any other final from any previous year, on purpose."
"Princesa street? Just keep walking, you'll find it eventually."
"When in doubt, go for the busty one." (Rhymes in Spanish)
"Here, Thursdays are for Paella, it's a tradition that started because it was all maids' day off. Rich people ate it on Sundays."
"Only Real Madrid fans accept that the team played badly, even if we loose. That's because we are the best."
"When I find out I'm about to die, I'll change teams to the [Real] Madrid, that way my friends can celebrate: One less!"
"To be honest, I could care less for the Catalans and their little flag."
"What are you doing? Get the hell out, don't you see this is an important game?"
