As the sports fans among you have probably already noticed, the Spanish don’t have as much of a tradition of gathering together in bars for sporting occasions as other countries do. In fact, in these parts, you’d be hard-pressed to find a bar showing any sports at all unless it’s an F.C. Barcelona game!
Have you ever ordered a coffee here in Catalunya, or in Spain in general, only to end up being served something a little different than what you thought you were ordering? It has happened to plenty of us “foreign types”, especially those who are on vacation or still new to the country and a bit unsure of the language.
