I was talking with my sister the other day and she mentioned an anecdote that occurred to her after a business meeting with partners from different countries. One of her French colleagues ordered Sangria in a bar where they went to have some tapas. After noting my sister’s shock face, the French colleague asked: Don’t you Spanish people drink sangria? To what my sister replied: Well, we drink beer or wine and only in some parties we prepare sangria, but it is not a daily drink at all.
So we chatted about Spanish clichés and this made us think about other commonplaces and that is the reason for today’s post.
