Título: About to. 25 years of European Funds in Andalusia Fecha: 22/03/2012
What are you about to do?

I´m about to send this small present to my granddaughter. She gave me as instrument and I´ve recorded this for her. She lives in Europe... and turns 25. Things have changed a lot.

25 years ago work was really hard. I´ve worked as builder, a mechanic and a chauffeur, and I´ve even been a sailor. I didn´t know what an equation was, fractions... none of those things... just 1, 2, 3.

When I hear a young lady say "I´ve got a law degree..." "I´m a chemistry teacher..." four degrees!... there are people that have them!... three languages, five languages... how can that be possible?

I remember we went to Madrid one day... my father got in the car, my brother, my friend, my wife and my wife´s sister (my sister-in-law)... When we left the car struggled to get going in first gear. In the old days you couldn´t get on the road and go vroom at top speed, there was a hole here and a bump there...,
and on top of all that the roads were narrow.

We set off at 7 o´clock in the morning and what time do you think we arrived?... the next day! When we got to Madrid I said "come on let´s go see Madrid" they couldnt even walk! Some years later they all said to me "do you remember what a lovely trip that was" and I said "don?t you remember what it was like in that car!!!"

Well, that´s life... that´s the way things were before! Not today.
