Misconceptions about Spain

Picture this: a Spanish shepherd herding sheep in Spain.


Perhaps there is nothing incompatible between being a developed country, such as Spain, and still have some of your nationals roaming the Spanish countryside herding sheep just as one would find in less developed countries such as Tanzania. This is an image that I see regularly at Butiama.

I'll live with it, but it wasn't the image I had of Spain.

In 2011 Spain had a per capita Gross Domestic Product of $US30,478 and it is the 12th largest economy on the world.
