Descubriendo Cataluña 2.0 / Discovering Catalonia 2.0

The start of March marks the third month in Esparreguera for me. I have now been in Spain for a total of six months (three here, one and a half working in Alicante and one in a half in hospitals in Alicante), so you’d expect my level of Spanish to be quite good. I...
