    Everybody says Spain is a great place, but I just don't see it. If you ask me it's just nothing special. To be fair it is not one of the worst countries, but certainly it does not crack the top 10. Good effort though. Maybe next time you can do better and try to appease the liberal establishment you so highly regard.
