In Francoland

I would kindly suggest you to read this article by Spanish writer Antonio Muñoz Molina translated by María Luisa Rodríguez Tapia and published yesterday in El Pais.

In Francoland: Both Europe and America love what they see as our quaint backwardness so much that they feel insulted if we explain to them how much we have changed. (In English)

En Francoland: En Europa o América, les gusta tanto el pintoresquismo de nuestro atraso que se ofenden si les explicamos todo lo que hemos cambiado. (En español)
