Cats on the stakeout
When I travel I always bring my notebook. These are excerpts from conversations I had with people in Madrid and Barcelona.
"That one right there is Martha Sanchez. In this terminal you always find celebrities with lower budgets."
"Is it true you got lost? What is it your first time in town? Yeah, we usually wait for our passengers in this bar."
"Well, on the other hand we find very funny the way that you Latin people talk, it's just strange."
"When [Real] Madrid plays the final, Barcelona fans watch any other match from a previous year, on purpose."
"The Princesa street? Yeah, 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 every maids' day off. Rich people use to eat it on Sundays."
"Only Real Madrid fans accept that the team played badly, even if we loose. That's because we are the best."
"Right before I'll die, I'll switch to [Real] Madrid so my friends can celebrate there's one less of them!"
"To be honest, I could care less for the Catalans and their little flag."
"But what are you doing? Get the hell out, don't you see this is an important game?" (I was crossing the street)
A few rescued memories from my international bar-hopping adventures.
