Welcome to Fake Flamenco, the website of Supergringa in Spain: A Travel Memoir.
What is fake flamenco? It’s how you dance until you know the real thing. Clap your hands. Stomp your feet. Throw your arms into the air. Repeat until your heart says, “¡Olé!” Speaking languages we make a lot of silly noises before we say, “Mamá.” Fake flamenco is free and more useful than a steamer trunk of clothes. That I know, because I overpacked tremendously when I went Spain (7 suitcases)! I learned what was essential, in my luggage and in my life, during my semester in Toledo, España.
