Assignment 2

Yes, too ask tree persons, what´s special with Catalonia,I thought that would be an easy part....But believe me it was not. Ok, first of all, i don´t speak much spanish, but the thing is that when i have been drinking a little, i am a spesialist!! So the first person i talked to was at Dansatorria Club - Que tal? Que specialial en Catalonia? Bla Bla... The guy looked back at me and.. started tinking, the first he said was of cource the language, as all of the others. And a asked again, what else? Otre cosas? Por favor? He tought again... "la comida", the food was spesial her....i asked again, what? bread with tomatos? He told me some of the things we talked about at school, nothing realy spesial. After this questions we talked for one hour, good for my spanish pracktesing!

Next person. Yesterday, Otto Suts, Donde eres? Catalunia? Ok he realy had a problem with answering he wen´t to ask his friend. Ok he came back, said the language, food- and the Sardina. He told me he hated that dans, that his mum made him dans it once... horrible experiens for him (hip hop guy).

One my way home i realised that i was only missing one person- he he... the taxi driver.
He told me the same, the language, but he was more culturazed...talked about values, cultur, and catalan spirit..and a loot of other things I cud not understand..... he did´nt stop talking- he talked faster and faster...... This was thing´s he realy had been thinking alot about...

Today am sitting at a internet cafe close to sagrada Familia, I did´nt know that the things where cansled.
See you all at monday.......... Have a nice weekend!!!
