I am a Portuguese-American and have dual citizenship since my parents are from Portugal. I live in Portugal now . As someone who don’t Spanish but European, I will day that some of what you said was quite offensive....Spaniards are cheap??? That is just plain rude to say and such a generalizaiton. So, because it is different than your country of origin, it is cheap? It is quite offensive when a foreigner comes in and makes these sweeping conclusions about a country which has literally so many regions which are autonomous...it is so different in each regions. I suggest you reflect in your cultural bias .
