Rebellion in the zoo

Oh silly tourists. You thought Spain was so quaint, the natives so blissfully oblivious, your trip to the Iberian peninsula an escape from the rat race.

How you enjoyed your brief submersions in Spanish culture, your brief parlays with the locals in a mixture of sign language and English spoken exclusively in the present tense.

What you didn’t know was that the Fauna Ibérica were also watching you.

Look what I found on youtube:

El Guiri

Guiris dancing … errr kind of.

Guiri borracho en SanFermin

The title pretty much says it all.

Niño Guiri borracho

I think this was filmed on a ferry between Spain and England. This kid is four sheets to the wind, as they say, and he has no idea what this Spanish guy is saying to him. It’s a good thing, too.

El guiri en plan figura

A tourist-torrero. An adventurous tourist fights a (baby) bull to the amusement of Spanish spectators.

El tanguita del grupo Los Guiris

A music video by a Spanish group called Los Guiris. They dress and act like … you guessed it. The true canción del verano!

Guiris gordas

Fat guiris. These guys take advantage of some tourists girls’ ignorance of Spanish.

boy whipped with belt by girl in palma de mallorca

This is what Spaniards think English tourists do when they come here. When in Spain

fauna y flora

Two Nengs, a prevalent species of Fauna Ibérica, drive by graffiti stating “Som una nació. Vota no” then head up to tourist central in Barcelona, la Sagrada Familia.

They watch the tourists; the tourists, cameras poised, stare up at one of Barcelona’s number one tourist attractions … Check out the unspeakable awesomeness of the Nike shoe hanging from the Neng’s rear view mirror. Chumba chumba ...
