Dear foreign readers:
I am quite sure most of you don’t care at all about Spain or can’t even place bull country correctly in the map, and I don’t blame you. It’s been a long time since we were anyone in the international landscape, mostly due to a long standing tradition of incompetent, corrupt or simply imbecile leaders and an inveterate indolence of most of the population. I’m almost positive that except from a handful of you, you ignore ninety nine per cent of our modern history, and I still don’t blame you. I have to admit the same degree of ignorance from lots of countries that mean nothing for me in my day to day life.
If, somehow, you are interested in what’s happening in the southwest corner of Europe, I will try to write at least on a weekly basis an article in English for your perusal. The only caveat is that you won’t be reading unbiased information, you will be reading my point of view. I don’t presume to represent anyone else, I’m a one-man band. By the same logic, you will be reading independent information, which I find to be an scarce commodity these days, even more so in my native country.
Another thing that I can guarantee is that at the end of these my weekly ramblings you will be left thinking along the lines of this article’s title. I know because most of my foreign friends have serious problems believing the things I tell them about Spain. You are welcome to think so, too, but my answer to that question will unfailingly be:
“I shit you not”.
