Thank you for the podcast! It was very interesting to learn about Spanish attitudes to foreign tourists.

It's such a shame there seem to be so very few pristine beaches left in Spain where people could enjoy some tranquility as well as some authentic Spanish food... the latter is caused by the fact that so many tourists are not really interested in Spanish culture or cuisine. They don't know what they are missing! There is nothing like a delicious gazpacho on a hot summer's day in Spain! How can one pass up the chance to splurge on all kinds of delicious seafoods which are almost unaffordable at home? Or pigging out (no pun intended) on jamón ibérico or pata negra? The only thing I will never get used to is the daily eating schedule in Spain... having breakfast in the morning and not eating after 8 o'clock in the evening is too deeply ingrained.
