foreign language

I´ve never traveled for an extended period of time in a place where I don´t have some ability to speak the language--until now. Galicians speak Gallego. They pretend it´s Spanish, but it´s really the bastard child of Portuguese and Gaelic that sounds like Italian. Somehow the rainy weather melts the consonants and turns them into X´s. It´s exhausting.
