Hello everyone, I tell you about my seventh and eighth week of the EYE project in Jerez de la Frontera. Time flies inexorably and it’s been two months since I started.
Andalusia is a fantastic region full of cultural sites where you can find a lot of Moorish architecture, such as the Alcazar and the Seville Cathedral, the Alhambra of Granada and the Arab baths of Jaén, the biggest in Europe, and much more yet. Regarding the economic aspect I noticed the low weight of the industrial sector in the economy, in the city of Jerez de la Frontera I met some Italian entrepreneurs working in the textile and package sectors, they decided to relocate their companies right here, facilitated by fiscal incentives of the state and by a slimmer bureaucracy compared to the Italian one. The economy in the Andalusian region is still strongly based on agriculture and on the growth of the service sector, with tourism in first place. The Costa del luz and the Costa del Sol are favorite areas for tourists from all over the world thanks to the mild climate during all the months of the year, you can also visit unique locations such as Gibraltar (territory of the United Kingdom) and Ceuta (autonomous city Spanish located in North Africa, surrounded by Morocco); Also worthy of note is the Flamengo which is a musical and dance style typical of Andalusia.
The past two weeks have concluded the Christmas holidays with New Year’s Eve and what we call the feast of the Epiphany in Italy. In fact, in Spain on 6 January is the party of Reyes Magos. I had the opportunity to experience the festive atmosphere that you breathe with the ride of the Magi Kings of the East through the streets of the center that come from the windows, house by house, distributing presents in a single night. First of all children should write the letter in which they indicate to the Magi the gifts they want to receive. Soon after, one of the favorite moments arrives: delivery. They could personally deliver it a few days before to the royal emissaries and postmen at the Grand Visir parade (an important political and religious councilor) sent by the Magi, the parade was held on January 3, the streets of the historic center.
In this atmosphere of total party the work in the host company has been going on regularly, with a job consultant we have dealt with the processing of employee payrolls, role in which I found myself at ease thanks to my studies and my work experience, obviously changes the reference legislation but the accounting principles are the same.
See you soon and a greeting to all my readers
