While there for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week I was going out to do a little shopping when I walked head on into a group protesting in the streets of Madrid. As many of you know, the economy in Spain is facing severe challenges, not least of which is high unemployment. In particular for young people, with more than 50% with no job. This protest was well organized and the people resolute. Out of respect and solidarity I turned around and joined them, if only for a moment!
This particular protest was about the need for transparency and information. Public radio and television are very important medium to get information to the masses.
If you are exploring opportunities for a holiday, add Spain to your list. Beautiful country…beautiful people.
