If you were wondering what the latest calls by Catalonia for independence were about, be sure to read Simon Harris’s explanation (and introduction to the complex issues at stake) in an article written for Family Life in Spain.
In the article, Simon answers questions like “Why are the Catalans so keen to obtain independence?”, “What are the main differences in the beliefs of Catalans and Castilians?” and “If Catalunya was granted total independence, how would it impact the life of an expat living there?”
UK-born Simon has lived in Barcelona since 1988, and it’s the city he calls home. Simon is also the author of Going Native in Catalonia, which was recently released in a Kindle edition by Summertime Publishing. Much more than a tourist guide listing the usual attractions for the casual tourist, Going Native in Catalonia digs deep beneath this nation’s psyche to give you a warts-and-all induction into the Catalan way of life.
