Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I´m sure it is bad everywhere, but I heard somewhere that Spain is one of the noisiest countries and it drives me ballistic.  Practically nobody knows what is to speak one at a time, the masses talk as if they were still living on 40 acres and the norm in public places is to have a loud tv AND loud music playing at once.

Sometimes I just lose it and shock everyone yelling "enough!" or start reading my book as if I were practicing in an amphitheater.

Add traffic, and all the village idiots´ kids necessity to get a motorcycle at 16, etc., etc. and I can understand why my patience doesn´t improve with age.

Our knowledge has surpassed our wisdom. -Charu Saxena.
