Transcript of Spanish Project 4/20/10

Spain The Spanish Flag Spain's government is known as a Parliamentary Monarchy. This is where they have a royal family, but at the same time they have a Parliament (same as the house and senate) with a President. The current President of Spain happens to be José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Here is a picture of him.
The most popular sport in Spain is soccer, or futball. On top of that, they also have the Pamplona Running of the Bulls. In this event, bulls are run along a course to an arena. During the trek, any one can go over the barricade and run in front of the bulls to show off. Once they reach the arena, professional bull fighters take on the bull’s one by one, or mano y mano, meaning hand to hand in Spanish. In Spain's 504,782 square Kilometres, or 195,379 square miles, there are 45,568,152 people (as of 2008). By looking at a map of Spain, we see that it borders Portugal and France, and is extremely close to touching Algeria. It's territories include the Balearic and Canary Islands. We as the United States have fought a war against Spain. In 1898, many islands were under question. Both countries wanted control or domination of them wanted them. This started a war lasting 10 weeks, ending with the Treaty of Paris, in which Spain declared defeat. As you can see, Spain was once part of the Roman Empire, seen above. This is where spain would be. In In Spain, food is loved. Their breakfasts are small, and they have multiple snacks between meals, usually one between breakfast and lunch, one between lunch and dinner. Lunch is normally had in the mid afternoon, and is the largest meal of the day, often consisting of multiple courses. Dinner is usually had around 8 to 9 PM, and it is smaller than lunch in size. There is sometimes yet another snack later, because often times Spaniards will stay up until almost midnight. A common late night snack is churros, which is why we chose them to represent Spain in our project. Ingredients include 1 cup water
2 Tbs brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup butter
1 cup white flour
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 to 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, depending on taste Often times, churros are served with hot chocolate. The Hot Chocolate, however, differs from ours. It is very thick, perfect for dipping churros into.
