León 1988 "Sol, Playa y Olé"

Open Call! Preferably boys

Organized by AEGEE-León

León 1988
"Europe is more integrated than ever, Euro is the currency in many countries, Spain has won 3 Eurocups and it is the top destination in the world and Portugal just hosted Eurovision this year and it is the hottest place-to-be now… wait wait wait… nothing of this has happened yet!

This is León, and therefore Spain, back in 1988. Yes, 30 years ago! Speaking English in Spain is as likely as riding a unicorn, everything cost a few “pesetas”, la “movida” is hitting hard in many cities and sun, flamenco, sangria, unemployment and “cubalibres” are everywhere, always mix with the Spanish way of life!

Beyond that, we, eager people, want to go to visit our neighbours to Portugal. We have our passports ready to cross the border, “escudos” in our wallet to buy some towels and a lot of “olé” to scream everywhere. Are you ready to join us and go back to the golden past? Ven y descubramos la verdadera España juntos y juntas…. y ¡OLÉ!"

Our ideal participant:

    We are looking for the original “guiri”, that foreigner that started to discover Spain several decades ago. But, overall, our “best guiri” should be wild, funny, crazy, loud, open-minded, nice, sportive, live-lover… like the perfect Spaniard!
