This is a quick post. I just came across this video that seems to be the candidacy of Madrid as a host city of the Olimpic Games in 2020.
This is not the first time Madrid is candidate to host the Olimpic Games and each time there has always been some controversy on the matter.
What do you think about it?
The video is fine, I guess. The only thing is the “flamenco” music (nothing against flamenco, I like some stuff). For some reason, “we” keep present it as something universal in Spain, but then, we get annoyed when we go abroad and people keep asking us if we dance flamenco everyday, if we play or sing flamenco, etc, etc.
Maybe another day I will write about stereotypes and my experience of 4 years in Italy…
