Spain-from Pain to Gain

Spain is a beautiful country. Many of you are looking back to her, as I did. Many of you were influenced by her language, by her creeds, lifestyle, and many things, including the pains of their colonization.

Spain is a colony of Rome and some other countries before they colonized others. And she also colonized other parts of the world  as a result. 

“In the Americas: Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and a great part of the southern united States.

In Asia-Pacific: Philipines, Guam, the Marianas and the Carolines islands.

 

In Africa: Western Sahara, Equatorial Guinea and small parts in northern and southern Morocco.” (source: wiki answers).

Some countries were colonized for more than 400 years and still loyal allies. But remember, other people also influenced them, although I don’t suggest that you build an empire.

There are also many countries with great stories  of how they influence others. But let’s take it personally, how do you like others to be influenced by you? How do you want your stories to be remembered?

That’s simply is Spain. They gained, even if  at first they also suffered the pain from their colonizers. You may have your own pain now, but someday you will also gain.
