Assigment 4.

Before I came here I didn´t have many expectations. I had heard that spanish people are really nice and friendly and also this thing called "mañana". Now, being here for 1,5 month, I´ve come to realize that all spanish people are not nice. Well, by this I mean mainly the people in supermarkets and stores etc... Never ever have an employee in a supermarket looked me in the eyes or even said hello. I was really surprised about this and this happens everywhere you go.

I also heard that spanish people take their time when for example fixing something in an appartment. This has happeneds to us. We have lived for a 1,5 month here and the hot water thing doesn´t still work as it should. There is 14 of us in our appartment but if you go like third or fourth one in the shower, don´t expect to get hot shower! In Finland this wouldn´t happen, because if there is a problem with your appartment they try fix it soon as possible, not in two months!

But still, these things are not going to spole my stay here. I have really loved here and I´m looking forward for these last 6 weeks what I still got!
