From GERMANY about SPAIN

“There are different types of social behaviours to start the workday. When I visited hospitals in the South of Spain or in Portugal for the first times I arrived very eager to start and finish the required meetings as early as possible to save the investigators’ time, but e.g. one Dr explained to me at 09:30 a.m. that this was the time to have a second breakfast incl. a little beer and at another hospital the whole group of medical doctors went for a coffee to a little bar across the street of the hospital just when the meetings were scheduled to start. I could not imagine such situation in Germany.”
