Notes: “Un-touched Spain” Found, and the New Spanish Anthem

Many thanks to all of you that submitted ideas on where to find “Untouched Spain” – I have updated the map on the original post.

Also Found, Lyrics for the Spanish National Anthem

“Spain has finally found the words to match its national anthem – which has been lyric-less since 1978 … The winning words, written by Paulino Cubero, an unemployed 52-year-old Madrid resident, try to be all things to all people.” Full article in The Guardian.

The lyrics do sound a little… um… well, you decide: “Long live Spain!… Love the Fatherland… Glory to the sons, who have given to history, justice and greatness, democracy and peace…” (Full lyrics in English in the Guardian piece, and in Spanish here.)
