The re- gion is wild, rugged and beauti- ful, is sparsely populated, and envoys a quality of life that has largely been lost elsewhere.

Bracing for the record In- flux estimated at an official explained: "It's the at- titude, 'I'm special in some- body else's back yard.'" Too often, he said, Cana- dians expect more considera- tion from Spanish authorities than they would get from gov- ernment at home. And they have come to the wrong coun- try. The unbending Spanish po- lice are hardened to tourists. They are not noted for casting an obliging eye while the for- eigners drop their inhibitions Student-youth car and railway package offered SABENA. the first airline t( introduce the student fare tn Europe, now adapts its pop ular Autojet and Railjet lour for student-youth clientele. This attractive, economics program offers a choice p packages from one week to su months based on self-driv auto rental or car leasing, an first class rail travel. SABENA's transatlanti youth fares are now in effec from 25 cities in the Unite States and Canada for anyon between 12 and 25 years ol Youth fares begin at Laws are strict, severely en- jrced and the authorities are ot easily impressed by the aere presence of a foreign assport, though the passport a "must" at all times. Advice from the official who knows Canadian tourist prob- ems inside out is: stay out of he possibility of trouble. He ells what happened to some rho didn't. Item: A Canadian girl grees to carry bags for a Brit- sh boy across customs check- joint The customs find mati- uana in the bags. The boy jets away. The girl is held in ail for a year without charge. She is found not guilty, re- eased and returns er a year in jail. Item- A tourist rents an apartment in the south of Spain. During his holiday he has a large party and among he guests, some smoke mari- luana. The guests all get away rat the Canadian host is de- ;ained, eventually set free but only after forfeiting bail. Item: A motorist is at fault in an accident, resulting in in- jury to a cyclist. His insurance company is not represented in Madrid. He is detained nearly a week until bond money is ar- ranged from Canada. Item: A couple sip an early morning drink in a night club at Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol. Grey-uniformed secur- ity police suddenly appear and demand "documentos." All 119 clients are hauled away to po- lice headquarters for a night of questioning. In almost all cases, innocent tourists without passports are victims in a "clean-up" campaign ordered by local authorities. P. UWSON TRAVEL ITD.

Phone 327-4094 or 328-3000___ Item: A Canadian buys a suede coat and pays a Madrid agency to ship it home. A year later he is waiting for his coat. Officially it is lost. Suspicious officials are helpless. Of 50 Canadians who went to Spanish jails last year, 45 were on drug charges. The _mini- mum sentence on conviction is six years. The consul at the Canadian embassy acts to see that jailed Canadians are fair- ly treated but he can't change a system of justice which holds a person guilty until proved innocent. Driving problems crop up among tourists of all ages. Spain requires an international driving licence. A Canadian li- cence validated here at the Ca- nadian embassy is tolerated but not advised in case of trou- ble. Canadians are also ad- vised to take out insurance with a company represented in Madrid. In case of accident, bond will always be required by Spanish law if the tourist is at fault. Obviously it is much more readily arranged through Madrid agency than through one in Winnipeg. Statistics from Malaga, pop- ular tourist resort on the south coast, show that most Cana- dians travel about in Spain. Of the Canadians arriving in Malaga during 1969, only 982 arrived there by air- many of the remainder com- ing by road. Some, usually young people, are caught driving older cars after1 export licences have ex- pired and expect authorities to ignore their offence because they are tourists. Canadians are advised to take their purchases home with them. If that is impossible they should make sure a ship- ping agency is reliable before spending money. Authorities report a lot of trouble with one agency in the habit of losing goods. Representation to the ministry of tourism has been to no avail. Here, even more than in London or Paris, Canadians are on their own. Contrary to ideas, the embassies are not travel agencies. They do not loan or arrange for mon- ey on presentation of passport, exceptional cases apart. Yet as in all tourist centres Cana- dians do Hock to the embassy expecting all sorts of services. Canadians planning to come to Spain can benefit from the mistakes of others. The coun- try has a lot to recommend it- self: it is full of old castles; weather is usually ideal, even in whiter in the South; people arc friendly and accommodat- ing, more so than either the French or British. But it re- mains a foreign country with tough authorities and law, not an "anything goes" pleasure- land. One is reminded of the bull fight, where the tourists with a fair idea of what is in store for them, Hock to have their fears confirmed. "The most disgusting spect- acle ever saw in my says one Canadian lady. "It's a job for the agrees another. Maybe they were enjoying themselves in a masochistic way.

In 1970 the Czechoslovak concert agency, Pragokonrvrt, organized more than con- certs in Bohemian castles and chateaux. Music of the old masters was performed at Kri- voklat Castle near Prague, at Cesky Sternberk, Zleby, in Roztoky near Prague, at Opocno in eastern Bohemia, and at Hradec near Opaya. This year concerts are also being given at Zvikov Castle nn the river Vltava (Moldau) and at Hluboka Chateau in South Bohemia. A similar pos- sibility will be provided by the newly renovated chateau at Hroznatov on the western bor- der of Bohemia, in a place en- joyed by Goethe when he visit- ed that region. Regular concerts of classical music are also held in the medieval town of Cheb at the former St. Bartholomew Church, where a rare collec- tion of Gothic art from the Cheb region is worth taking time to look at.
