Estilo La Farga

We had a hilarious real estate agent showing us a couple houses the other day. Some of the more memorable phrases: “Yes, they have ten kids. Estilo la Farga”. Considering that tuition and lunch is free if you have four or more kids…

I had to appreciate his honesty when he mentioned that the woman wanted to sell her place in Sant Cugat’s Eixample district because she was tired of constantly seeing Russian and Albanian thieves in her yard.

i dont get it. 'farga style?' what's that? your kids all dress the same and they have no manners?

also, sant cugat has an eixample district? where's that?

I think having a massive brood of kids is considered "Farga style" in Sant Cugat.

The Eixample district the southern part of downtown sant cugat. I guess it's called Eixample because it has city blocks. Carrer de les Tres Places is supposedly where the thieves hangout.

Hi,

This has to do with La Farga school (http://www.institucio.org/lafarga/), an Opus Dei concertada.
More kids is better and large families is their way of life...
