    Come to Spain. Please!

    Tourism is Spain no. 1 industry, and it's been so for 40 years, and will probably continue to be for some time to come. So when tourism fails, Spain gets the shakes. This year, tourism arrivals have declined by 1%, which means hunger and riots on the streets this winter. Well, not really, but lots of people are talking about what's wrong, what to do, and where do we failed.
    Spain has traditionally offered the sun, the sea, cheap travel and lodging and our irresistible personality. We have more sun than ever, travel is even cheaper due to low-cost airlines, but lodging is not; 15 days in an apartment by the sea can easily go up to 3000 €. That's pretty bad for spanish people, who can ill afford that kind of things, and usually go for a single week or to share apartments with relatives and friends (or to crash at some relatives's house, which is very popular too).
    Things are changing, however. Prices should go down, and city councils should try to invest in more services for resorts. And pay more attention to nature preservation, of course.

    I'd love to - but have first find some days I can take off the job :(

    Anyway, this fall doesn't look very promising, but I guess I have to plan some spring visit... Actually I'd love to combine it with some work - spending some time at a uni, presenting my own research or doing some stuff together. Let me know if you see any options around or I can fit somewhere...

    I didn't intend to make this personal, but OK, send us an email and we'll see what can be done.
