The rain in Spain…

Seem like all the sayings about Spain are coming true… “The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain” – well, I’m not sure what’s happening on the coasts, but it’s been pouring here for days (¡Madre mia como cae! says Marina, on an hourly basis…)

A favourite phrase in Madrid at this time of year is “Hasta el 40 de Mayo, no te quites el sayo” – Don’t take your coat off until the the 40th of May, meaning, obviously, that you can’t bet on non-stop good weather until at least June 10th.

And… Frases raras en Español, strange phrases in Spanish, is bizzarely one of the google searches that brings most people to this site every month!
