For instance, did
you know, that if you walk along the streets in old villages in Andalucia,
you will see on many doors, there will be knockers in the shape of
hands, but you probably don't know why. It's because one day, a
faithful wife was making “la cena” for her hardworking husband, when he
came home with another woman! The wife plunged her hand into the soup pot in anguish
where it was severely burned. Now the Fatima hand is a good luck omen if given as a gift.
Another wonderful attraction is
the Flamenco, one of the most popular dances in the world. Spain is one of the most popular tourist destinations for the British,
because unlike Britain, Spain has gorgeous weather all year long!
is known worldwide for it's immensely delicious cuisine. But believe it
or not, probably the most popular food in Spain is “jamon”. Which
means, ham. One of my very best friends once told me, “ no puedo
vivir sin jamon”. That means, “ I can't live without ham”.( We don't eat ham or any pork).
The most popular Spanish food is Paella. I think our good friend from Valencia makes it the best. Paella is a rice dish that originated in its modern form in
the mid-19th century in Valencia, Spain. Valencian paella is made with white rice, meat (rabbit, chicken, duck), green vegetables, butter beans and seasoning like saffron.
