And the list goes on! Here are just 11 things I’ve noticed about Spain that are different from the U.S. It’s always funny to learn new aspects about Spanish culture and compare them. Enjoy!
1. Burger King delivers.
2. At school potlucks with Spaniards, they don’t fill up their plates with food. They put one dish on their plate and eat one dish at a time.
3. Also at school potlucks, you can reach over each other to get food and have your elbows on the table and it’s totally ok. Do you hear that mom?
4. In school I learned that “lunch” in Spanish was “almuerzo” or “almorzar.” But in Logroño, that actually refers to the snack between breakfast and lunch. “Lunch” is called “comer,” which in school I learned was only “to eat.” Confused? Yeah me too, but I’ve adjsuted.
