In an increasingly globalised world, ability to communicate is empowering...unfortunately having my level of Spanish is not.

The most accurate description of what I have been breaking my teeth over the last week is Spanrench, an eclectic mix of French, Spanish and Hebrew. Between the ´toilettes´ and the ´c’ilu´s,’ a smile here, a hand movement there I think we are slowly making ourselves understood.

I have to say it isn’t helped by the fact that South American Spanish is different to Spanish Spanish, but then when you don’t really speak either, it doesn’t mater that much.
