Spain

By George Huang, 1st period

Why Spain?

If you want to visit a beach, watch live bullfights, travel to another country, try new foods, learn new information, Spain is the perfect choice for you. Paella and saffron are some of the most famous and delicious dishes in Spain. Soccer is the most popular sport in Spain and the Prado in Madrid is one of the most famous museums. The fiesta of San Fermín is one of most well known holidays. During that time many bulls are set free for bullfights. If you want to travel to Spain, you are probably going to have to change your money into Euros. The exchange rate is 0.7194 euros per U.S. dollar. To make things easier, you should also learn Spanish, which is the official language of Spain. To get a head start, some basic words are given here: hello is hola, bye is adiós, and thank you is gracias. The government of Spain is a parliamentary monarchy. That means that the monarch or king is just called a king but he does not have much power in the government. The parliament has most of the power. But the government really does not matter to your trip. Come to Spain!
