    and noticed the same thing, both in mainland Spain and in the Canaries. And forget about comparisons with the US - the roads in Spain proper are significantly better than in much of the rest of Europe.

    But our first visit, to the mainland, was during the most overheated part of the European bubble. The entire Madrid skyline was punctuated with construction cranes, as were those of many other cities. I found it strange that they were also building new secondary roads directly alongside already existing, and perfectly adequate, ones. After the crash I found myself wondering if they just had so much cash on hand they didn't know what to do with it.
