And that is what happened in Spain and Greece.............

Some years ago a small rural town in Spain twinned with a similar town in Greece.
The Mayor of the Greek town visited the Spanish town.
When he saw the palatial mansion belonging to the Spanish mayor he wondered howhe could afford such a house.
The Spaniard said; "You see that bridge over there? The EU gave us a grantto build a two-lane bridge, but by
building a single lane bridge with traffic lights at either end this housecould be built".
The following year the Spaniard visited the Greek town.
He was simply amazed at the Greek Mayor's house, gold taps, marble floors, itwas marvellous.
When he asked how this could be afforded the Greek said;
"You see that bridge over there?" The Spaniard replied; "No….."
