Gerona is not necessarily a touristy city, but too bad, ‘cause it’s a very beautiful place with great ancient architecture and ruins. By reading this I’ve learned the difference between Catalan and Castellan, as well as the confirmation that jerks are everywhere. So, you can’t make a generalization of a particular people after one visit only.
why do you speak bad about beatiful city? Do you have any problem with catalan language??? i Don´t speak catalan normally but i live in girona... i haven't had problems with the catalan... i have 3 advices for you:
1.improve you planification for your next trip.
2. ask people to speak spanish... (i wonder how you can survive if you don´t speak catalan... ha ha ha!!!!!)
3. save more money for your next trip... maybe you can stay in a bedroom with hot water!!!!!
