I had been practicing my Spanish whilst driving along, and in my best accent told the reception I had reserved a room and our name, that went well, but then Ray asked where the laundrette was and the guy quick fired back an answer. We both looked at each other and I explained we only had a little Spanish, to which he replied, Okay and proceeded to tell us directions in perfect English. It made us all laugh, but at least we tried. We actually do understand more than we speak, but when they talk it is like they are running a Usain Bolt hundred meters.
