I was the only English speaker on the tour,as per usual and so I had my own interpreter Carlos.My Spanish though continues to go from strength to strength and my ear can pick out the gist of most conversations almost to the point where I dont need someone to interpret for me,which is astounding considering I knew only how to say a couple of words when I arrived on the continent!
