Andorra was the only country to fight the first and second world wars simultaniously as it was left out of the original armastice treaty after the first world war and had to sign a special one after the compleation of the second.

Probally, in the Spanish Civil War the Andorrans Practiced contraband, taking cigarettes, sugar, ect. To the spanish people also they helped hundreds of english pilotes who had crashed there plains in Andorra while fliying to France they helped them cross the border to spain to the english embassy, at one time a pack of Nazi Germans crossed the border into Andorra and spain almost joined the second world war, but Franco decided he had enough problems already. Also Jews would come to Andorra seeking Refuge then ask the locals to take them to spain instead the Andorrans would take them half way up a mountain and shoot them and take there money.

We also Had a Royal Family not long ago, A german guy decided Andorra needed a King he proclaimed himself King Boris el Pimer (The first) 3 days later La guardia Civil(Spanish police) came up and shot him. We also had a revolution wich was like 100 vs 100 and the Spanish had to stop it because it was bugering the tourism. And until 1980 women couldnt drive.


Little fun facts about Andorra :wink:

Wow- only stuff I know about the Spanish area comes from Sharpe and the Count of Monte Cristo.

Instruments- I play keyboard, working on piano, cornet, and the harmonica! Also the recorder, but so do most girls of my age. A school thing.

cornet? As in the mini-trumpet? I've always wondered, what is the difference between the cornet and trumpet?

I used to play the cello once upon a time. I wasn't that good, but I played in various amateur orchestras, chamber groups, quartets and even in a folk group!
These days I just sing in a choir.

I used to play the electric organ and piano, but quite because I didn't like to play classic music - so disharmonious when I play it. Used to love playing the organ though - I had a relly nice teacher that always brought me notes for famous songs - it was really fun. Then they replaced the teacher and I took the first excuse out of it.

I also played those wooden little flute thingies - don't know how they're called in english - simple things that don't take much to make them sound nice.

About Andorra - scary place by that history account - I hope they got it out of their system.

The wooden thing wizzard posted a picture of is called a recorder.
So when you wrote wodden and like a flute and small Greebo thought it might be one.

But don't ask me why it is called that! And if yomeone happens to know: tell me please!
