I’m in Barcelona (my hometown) for work until mid September. Although I have been following the critical situation of Spain in the news, it is very different to read about it on the newspapers than to see that the stores in your street are closing, that a lot of your acquaintances are unemployed, and that the Catalan government is reducing the number of ambulances for emergencies and closing community health centres… If you want to undertand why the crisis has hitted Spain more than other European countries, watch this (in Spanish with English subtitles):
