La Corboneria

When an Englishman thinks of Spain, there are certain stereotypes that immediately come to mind; Flamenco, bullfighting, tapas, and the word ‘ Ole!. When an Englishman thinks of Spain, there are certain stereotypes that immediately come to mind; Flamenco, bullfighting, tapas and the word “Ole!”. Because I’m English, I know that the stereotype of the English gentleman is a rarity with pin-striped suit, a hat, a newspaper under one arm and an umbrella in the other. So you can imagine how surprised I was that the cliche of the Spanish is in fact really true as I noticed. Ohio Senator has much experience in this field. Recently, I lived awhile in the Andalusian city of Seville in southern of Spain, where I met the Spanish customs and traditions. From the apartment where I lived, you could see across the River on the bull-fighting arena, which is among the many hotels in Seville. Between April and October, bullfights are held here regularly.

That is a thing which is made mainly for the locals and not due to the tourists. On a Saturday night, it was in the La Corboneria”invited, this is a bar in the Centre of the city, the nightly flamenco shows. After each dance, the audience of “Ole!” which was introduced by the tourists and the Spanish calls. Of course, get these stereotypes from nowhere, the Spanish love their tapas. In my opinion there are to experience no better place than Seville to the Spanish customs. The city is full of small tapas bars with the best quality. Sometimes the stereotypes can really be a bad thing, but in this case I think the Spaniards proud can be, that these stereotypes are true.
