  1. I'm coming from Spain and it's really sad what it happened top me today, like it happened a lot of people before me. I think you have a problem and it seems you don't are aware of it. I'm not only will come back to my country with a bad memory of the place that Brontë's sisters made famous but for the whole England country. I've been to a lot of places around the world and I've never seen anything before. I don't think this is something about this man called Teddy but about English legacy because they know the peolpe who parks there are tourits and the damage they cause not only to the town but to the country is huge.
