Winds of Spain
Like everyone, my friends from Spain are embarrassed when their country is spoken of despectively abroad. And if the comments are unfair it can even make them angry, like when President Sarkozy spoke too much or too fast about Prime Minister Zapatero a few days ago, for example.
In contrast they're happy of course when their country gets a fair positive review.
So, I'd encourage my friends from Spain to watch the BBC News feature on the successful development of wind energy in their country.
Forty percent of the country's electricity produced by wind during peak times this winter, that's really something to be proud of.
