Assignment 4 Impression and contrast

Before my arrival i didnt know so much about Barcelona. I haven`t been to Spain before so i was absolutly without ideas how this was going to be like. What i had hard was that it was a "nightlife" city and that everybody i speaked with said it was a beautiful city. If i had any expectations they was more or less buildt upon that. The biggest differences i see, exept from the weather is the eating and "going out" habits.
In Norway we are used to eat breakfast..0800 Lunch 1200 and dinner at 16-1700 And maybe something for the evening...The resturants are open all day..means you can go out to eat whenever you want. Here you have to pay attention to the watch. Comida is served between 1400 and 1600. If you iss it you have to eat at home.Same in the evening, 2200-2400...In Norway most of the resturants close at 2200. Thats my biggest culture shock
