What are the proper business hours in Spain? I know that they have siestas, but what time does that occur? Would it be considered impolite if we conducted business during siesta hours? What is the usual climate in Spain? Will our workers need to bring any winter clothing? I do not want our workers to over pack if the climate remains steady for their time there.

Thank you, Vyvy Ta Manager, Human Resource...
