Migration

Spain is a country with a high percentage of migrants.

For a start, there are lots of Northern Europeans, like yours truly, that have migrated to the South. Then, there are a few hundred thousand immigrants from North Africa that seek work and income chances here that they are not given in their home countries. And lastly, there are in excess of one million immigrants from previously Spanish colonies who speak Spanish and who hope, again, for opportunities that in South America or the Philippines they cannot find.

Statistics say that some 15 percent of Spain’s population has an immigration background. In the Balearic Islands, this figure is said to be nearer 20 percent.

The photo was taken in Manacor, Mallorca, Spain. The date: October 8th, 2007. The time was 13:45:44.
