Many years ago, seven years to be precise, I travelled to London for five days. I went there with my school friends. It was the first time we travelled together, and also my first travel abroad. Like every tourist who travels abroad for the first time, I thought that anyone, except my friends, couldn't understand me.
One day, when were walking in the city center, laughing and analyzing everything, a boy came to me. He just wanted to give me a pamphlet about a restaurant... a pamphlet in English. At that time, my English was worse than now (although today isn't as good as I would like) and I supposed that I couldn't understand the pamphlet. What did I do?
I said to the boy: "No no, thank you", and I turned to go on my way and I said: "Total, no lo voy a entender". Suddenly, unexpectedly, I saw the same boy behind me and said to me: Pues dice que hay comida muy buena y muy barata!" Yes! I put my foot on it too!
Effectively, the boy was Spanish too! And I learned that there are people who can understand you everywhere.
