Yes but maybe they still own some of it.
How can it be considered a poor country when it produces cars ?

Yes, but this seems to be what very many Brits want. Essentially they come to southern Europe looking Britain with sun.

No.

It is a bit out of line for your idea of what the modern world should be.

Good grief, Belfast is a grubby hellhole compared to Madrid or Barcelona. And Enniskillen still thinks the Battle of the Boyne is in progress.

The style of architecture is typical of the older houses in rural Spain or Portugal. What conditions are in these houses are and what amenities they may or may not have vary considerably - in my daily observation.

NI, agreed, grim and backward. An English friend returned from a wedding in NI yesterday, it was his first trip. His proclamation was, "My god, that place is hundreds of years behind!" To which I replied, "My friend that place is your place, fix it then."

One thing I also noticed is that they don't seem to paint their houses in Spain.

I am not the only one because my mother did say "I don't like living here, I feel guilty because our house is much bigger than the natives". Which it was. We had a normal sized house and they lived in small huts like the one above. Omg and don't get me started about the power, it went off every single day mutiple times which is atrocious. There were also gun shots every single night which was terrfying and I still don't know what it was about.

And actually I love Spain thats why i've been seven times. I just do not want to experience rural life again.
So you're telling me someone actually lives in that last one? Even though it has no windows and is clearly derelict and falling to bits? Did you knock on the door to see if anyone was home?

Sorry, buddy, but you're talking nonsense as you so often do.

I bet most English (and Scottish and Welsh) people would be happy to see the back of Northern Ireland.

Mac15, I do not know what you have against Spain, you see things that others do not see. You have to be more objective though to you not like a country. People are not stupid and you, Mac15, stay in ridiculous as now
I have my choice pretty much of where in the world I might go for medical treatment. When I needed two very special, complicated neuro-surgical procedures on my spine, a doctor and hospital in Barcelona came out in the top ten - above the U.K. or U.S. places on the list. Having the misfortune of needing extensive medical treatment in the past, I have lots of places for comparison, and this hospital in Barcelona was the best place I have ever been to...better than any private hospital in NYC, for example.

You have not been to Spain in your life. The towns in Spain are very careful and well connected with all the comforts of modern life. The house that you show is in ruins, nobody lives there and for that is in ruins. The other is a set of electricity or maintenance, lol.
