Ok I'm here in Spain. Loving the architecture and famous sites I have studied. My biggest gripe is the food. Nothing here in Madrid has been great. The tapas have all been subpar. We have even been to some of Madrid's top restaurants. In addition I would have said I had pretty good Spanish,but it's obviously different and inferior to the locals. I get looks when ordering. Speaking of ordering apparently you walk up to the bar to order and then find a table. The waiter doesn't come to you. Another difference is they never come back to your table to check on you. We also feel weird approaching the counter for our bill

Spanish-Mexican and Castilian are different. Enjoy your trip.

Wiki search. LoL.

Yeah. I freaked about the customs when I was there.
