bullet proof vest & cricket box (for those pesky rubber bullets), ski mask/balaclava to avoid those embarrassing "oh look it's domino in a riot" moments, wet suit under your clothes for the water cannon, and a small but stylish gas mask for the CS gas, (also a bottle of water to rinse your eyes in case you don't get the mask on in time).

oh and have a great time!!

Spain is rooted.
Their Banks were downgraded a few days ago.
Greeks and Spaniards have withdrawn hundreds of millions of Euros in anticipation of leaving the Euro and a massive devaluation of any replacement currency.

If you waited a month you would prolly get a lot more for your money.
That is unless tourists get targeted for muggings.

It's been a while since I've been to either of those places but the usuals I guess - zie arc, the shomps, zie tower, bulls etc. Perhaps you could stop at every Maccas along your treck for a le big mac and code up a mobile app that does something with the prices and data! :)

that first video is political wank... Germany is not the a****** that mismanaged the Greek, Spanish or French economy.

Yeah I think that first video is more political nonsense, not sure I agree with some of the financial facts touted.
