A Peek in the Eyes of Spanish Culture

This advertisement for Cruzcampo Beer does an amazing job displaying the Spanish culture. Here are some of the things that now surround my life. Below is a translation:

Andalusia…Andalusia isn’t where Europe ends, it is where it begins.Here is more or less where the New World began. We have oceans, fields, snow and deserts. We have everyone from cowboys to British soldiers. And we have art, a lot of art. El Andaluz isn’t an accent, it’s Castillian Spanish amongst friends. And the blondes are never alone – they come accompanied by tapas. Here, we don’t eat tomatoes; we drink them. Our bullfighting costumes aren’t made of light, they give light. And our sports matches always have a third round.

In Andalucia, horns don’t scare us: we fight them. We don’t unbutton our shirts, we tear them open. We don’t walk down the street, we drink it. In Andalucia, we don’t exaggerate. Everyone else just underestimates. We love olive oil, ham and colored lanterns. We love friendship, passion and midday dreaming. We love those who have left us, and those who have stayed. We love that art, that smile, that pride, that green, that white! We Andalusians love this place, and we cheers to it with this beer.
