Spain for Every Body

Spain, especially Catalunya, cares for every one of its nationals. They especially care for their disabled people. Every underground station has a lift.

Every “Servicios” toilet facility has at least one cubicle suitable for the disabled. And then there is always a baby change table. No matter what the condition of the conveniences are.

Beaches have special water friendly, floating wheel chairs and a board walk down to the water. Volunteers are on hand to help.

Wherever there are steps there is also a ramp. Every car park has well located reserved spaces for people with disabilities.

We frequently see young people with a group of disabled people, leading them out on an adventure.

I am overawed by the consideration given to all it’s people in a country that has struggled with civil unrest and is now struggling with an enormous debt.
