The strange belief that Spanish parents have that children can do as they want including running round restaurants.
What are the best things about living in Spain?

Meatballs, deep fried baby squid, chorizo and lentils. Our favourite fast food snack is 100 Montaditos

If you won the Euromilliones – would you still live where you currently are? Why? Why not?
