There’s a saying the Spain: mañana! Which simply means ‘Tomorrow!’ it’s a reflection of the famous Spanish attitude to work and thus also the reason that many of the buildings in Spain take so damn long to build..

A short rant on Cleanliness, Personal Hygiene and the Ethics of Slime
I recently stayed at a house that had a bathroom that looked like it might have actually been haunted; it looked like a nastier, more putrid smelling place than the cabin from The Evil Dead in the final moments of the movie… and we were staying here for another 4 whole nights, awesome.
