I enjoyed a nice christmas break in Spain, visiting friends, however on my last night there, my friends and I were stopped by the police (routine they said). One of my friends was not carrying an ID card and I was not carrying my passport. We were then promptly searched and interrogated about our movements and professions and told we were being taken to the police station for processing. When asked what for, we were told that we had broken the law by not carrying our identification. Luckily in the end they did not take us. Btw, incase you are wondering we are all white westerners. What is going on in Europe? The only thing missing is the goose step.
