Alex found his first addiction. A very typical Spanish addiction even, jamón! In Spain it is even normal that vegetarians make an exception for a nice jamón, and enjoy a nice slice of cured salted pig meat without any problems.
Alex also developed a taste and spends quite some time looking at the pigs leg and asking for little pieces of the tasty jamón. In Spain the people are convinced that jamón is one of the most healthy foods available so his current meat addiction is not a problem at all.
