~~*~SPECIAL POST~*~~

CATALUNYA


I know this is a FC. Barcelona community, but today is a very special day for Catalunya, the country of our club, so i thought this is still kind of appropriate.
Today Catalunya NT is playing their once in a year football game. This year is the turn of Honduras!!
7 players (but now it's only 6 since Gerard has back problems) from Barça have been called up, so this can be of your interest too! :D

Full list of players that have been called up for the game:

Víctor Valdés - FC BARCELONA
Francesc Arnau - MÁLAGA CF
Andreu Fontàs - FC BARCELONA B

I ALSO WANTED TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO START A PROJECT MY DEAR daysofjune THOUGHT OF. I KNOW SOME OF THE STUFF ABOUT MY COUNTRY SEEMS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND, THERE'S A LOT OF BULLSHIT GOING AROUND, THE SUBJECT SEEMS DELICATE AND CAN CREATE CONFUSION, ETC.
WE THOUGHT THAT IF YOU WANT YOU CAN ASK ANY KIND OF QUESTIONS IN THIS POST, WE'LL COLLECT THEM AND ANSWER THEM AND THEN IN SOME DAYS WE'LL MAKE ANOTHER POST WITH ALL YOUR QUESTIONS + ANSWERS.
DON'T BE SHY, YOU CAN ASK ABOUT ANYTHING, FROM OUR TRADITIONAL FOOD, OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM, HISTORY, LANGUAGE, OR WHO OUR MISTER/MISS IS. I'D LOVE YOU TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE COUNTRY OF YOUR CLUB, WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CATALAN. AFTER ALL, WE'RE NOT "MÉS QUE UN CLUB" FOR NOTHING. <3

 
ENJOY THE GAME! VISCA CATALUNYA!!!

Let me simmer on the fact that Thiago is of Brazillian descent, who was born in Italy, but grew up in Spain.

Just let me simmer on that.

I am coming to Barcelona in summer for a month(language school) so I have tons of questions in my mind

Do you guys only speak both Catalan and Spanish right? Somebody told me some of them don't like speaking Spanish.

My main problem is food. Barcelona is not a very cheap place right? Can I find cheap restaurants because I want to spent my mone on FCB stuffs.

ktrnmy

I'll try to answer!

Yes, we speak Catalan and Spanish, Everybody in Barcelona is able to speak Spanish and if they see that you don't understand catalan they'll talk to you in spanish without problem. There are some radical people that don't want to speak spanish but normally they are comprehensive with foregin people (or they'll talk to you in english)

If you know where to go is cheap. Lunchtime is cheaper than dinner.
For lunch you can always order a 2 course menu (+ dessert or coffe, drink and bread) for more or less 10 euros in most of the restaurants (they have the menu written outside)
If not you can go to FresCo (there are a lot of them and the food is cheap and good) or try to find cheap places near where you'll live (if you look for them you'll find them)

I think the cheapest place is the Barri de Gràcia where you can have lots of food from different parts of the world. It depends on where you'll be living!

I hope I helped you!

So I am going to ask a couple of questions cos I am molt curious <3

1) How would you say the independence movement is doing now in Catalunya? What ways can folks get involved to support the movement? And I am never going to use the evil s word ever again, no worries.

2) Correct me if I am wrong, or blame wiki XD, but Catalan is spoken in France, Andorra and Italy as well, correct? Is there any sense of solidarity with those Catalans in other countries? Would they be welcome as citizens in an independent Catalunya? (Ok, that last question is sort of tricky, cos v. hypothetical. You can just put your own opinion, nena <3)

3) The push to maintain Catalan in Catalunya is impressive. Is all public education in Catalunya in Catalan?

4) Y R CatalanZ sooo hawt??? (sorry, I couldn't help myself XD)
