The countryside of Catalunya Profunda

Fields of wheat, old castles, great food, long winding roads, confused GPS, wild pigs and the occasional prostitute sitting on a plastic chair next to the road in the middle of nowhere.

I thought about asking for directions but it felt kind of wrong. A foreign language is tricky when it comes to double meanings and I might have asked for the wrong thing.

Reminds me of the time that a guy kept asking me "Tu entiendes?" Unfortunately I was new in Spain and proud of the fact that I thought I knew what he was asking and kept saying "Si!". A Spanish speaking friend who was with me at the time was not being helpful at all due to the fact that she was suffering from convulsive laughing fits.

She looked kind of tough, I think a camera would have been a mistake.
