Spain is one of the world’s most popular countries for tourists to visit, which is kind of obvious when you consider this is the home of tapas (or pintxos in the Basque north), the place which inspired IMO Hemingway’s magnum opus For Whom the Bell Tolls, and is steeped in history from pre-Roman times through the Civil War and the dictatorship under Franco. They also have an amazing soccer *ahem* futbol league. You’ve probably heard of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona? Let the record show I supported Real Betis Balompié, the “other” team in Sevilla, before they do a Leicester 50 years from now and everyone hops on the bandwagon. That’s me, quite drunk, at a pre-match gathering of Betis fans in 2014. They finished bottom of the league and were relegated. Viva er Betis manque pierda! – Long live Betis, even when they lose!
