    How much Spanish do you need on the VDLP

    Before going to a clinic I wrote the problem down and then translated it and saved it (you could email it to yourself). It helped a lot as the translation was first shown at the desk and then to a nurse and later to a doctor.

    Basilica de San Isidoro in León and Stupid Stupid Me

    It was an impressive room but I had to pass through it quickly because I got to the museum shorty before closing and the pantheon was my priority. However, we got to see many illuminated manuscripts on display at the museum attached to the cathedral in nearby Astorga.

    How much Spanish do you need on the VDLP

    Pre-camino, when really rusty in Spanish, I had this asked of me in Spanish (in the US). The toilets were down a corridor at the entrance/exit to the building so I pointed down to the doors and said "Casa afuera." Eventually I realized what I said, and as the woman was on her way, I called out...

    One Day at a Time, one Photo at a Time 4.0.

    Most of mine are on that snapped SD card that $1,000 might fix. But this is the closest that I still have to yours. I love @SabineP's lonely road pictures from all over Spain (and Belgium).

    Via de la Plata in Reverse

    If you use the Wikiloc app you can just walk along a track and go the way you think the camino goes. If it notices that you have walked off the track it will give you an audio warning and then you can backtrack to the junction, look at its map and choose the correct path. Also, if you have...

    The Not Serious thread, phase IV, 2021

    Don't feel a need to comment or even watch this video of a guy demonstrating American accents. I'm fascinated with lots of videos of this type but I'm not sure why because when they say "Notice the difference in these sounds" I can't tell them apart. Since accents come up here a lot, here we go...

    Were you holding him hostage? I looks as if he is sending a secret message for help.

    Trying to work out the length of my camino for flights

    37? Five weeks off work and a leading and trailing weekend day.

    @kirkie might have had the camino closed on her but we did better. In Sarria (??) they were also closing the camino down for work but they were putting up detour signs.

    How much Spanish do you need on the VDLP

    In a Mad magazine parody of a modern Tarzan movie. Explorer: Why, you speak English as good as I do! Tarzan: Twice wrong. Use well, not good and I speak it better than you do. Anyway it was somewhat like the above. It's been 50+ years after all.
