A Sunny Day in Spain
This is a story related to me by my best friend who was on a cruise and debarked in Spain for a day tour. She was waiting for the bus to return to her boat standing in a shelter designed for about six people when a shower came up. Suddenly, about 20 people crowded in together and one of the Spaniards started singing and all the others joined in. My friend knows just enough Spanish to know the song was about rain. When the song finished they were all smiles and chatting with one another and my friend was so delighted she turned to the lady next to her and hugged her and received a big hug and kisses on both cheeks back. It was the highlight of her trip!
