I have some neighbours that live in Santa Marta and Bogota, and lots of Spanish investments in Colombia. Colombia is considered a good bet for Spanish firms, along with Peru and Chile. They also watch a lot of Spanish TV. A very Hispanic country with historical cities like Cartagena. Spanish visiting or living in Colombia don't feel like foreigners, at least in comparison with Spain that is becoming un-Spanish everyday due to the EC. They want to ban bulls, many festivities, timetables, anything that is Spanish.

As to the previous poster, a Dutch troll. For some strange reason, many Dutch have this identity challenge and mess with Spain.

Short answer, not really. Again there are no reliable statistics as in Portugal as well as in most European countries so all we can go are immigrants and several associations relating to ethnic minorities. They are worst off than the Portuguese or those of Portuguese ancestry and continue to be underrepresented in all sectors of Portuguese society, especially the Roma minority. That being said, there has been an increase in representation and awareness of minorities and more persons from a foreign background are rising economically. In addition, there isn't to seem to be the problems that other European nations or the United States have. Probably its due to the low proportion and being present in only a few areas of the country.

Sorry for the off topic just answering the post from GoodHombre.

The Roma on the other hand and aren't doing well.
True, however their number is very small as most of them are uneducated but the numbers are rising as rich Angolans, Brazilians and Chinese are coming to Portugal to live, invest in property, businesses etc. The Roma as you correctly state are not doing well at all but there have been major improvements in their integration.

Is a debate which exists in your head maybe because I never heard anything of that in Spain.


Is funny how americans, italians, swedes, finnish, french, british, dutch, australians etc tell that Spain is purely European (because is what it is) and you deny it lmao

Is like saying that Netherlands is more Caribbean than European because of Aruba or Curaçao lol.
