"Spain is a major contrast to Eastern Europe, the stereotype is true; Latinos are just way more friendly. I think of a diminutive ancient Catalan woman that approached me in a grocery store, tapped my elbow, and rambled for a couple of minutes about the items she was getting there, she then chatted up the cashier and several other customers in the store. Or the first day I arrived in Valencia I was wandering through the winding streets of the old town (likely with a puzzled look on my face), an elderly Spanish couple stopped me and gave me directions to just where I needed to go."
