Spanish people consider meals as an important social activity; they usually start their mornings with a continental breakfast; a ritual they call "ir a desayunar" (go out for breakfast), they enjoy drinking coffee and eating churros (strips of fried dough dipped in a cup of thick hot cocoa). Foreign people consider Spanish coffee very strong and bitter for their tastes so they usually ask for a more diluted American coffee.
