Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Heh - it's my thick Los Angeles accent that's to blame...

Actually, one of the friends I was with is a total skater-boi (for example, he actually advised us to "cop a squat" on the fountain at the Louvre).  We were worried he'd have trouble communicating.  We get to the restaurant and, to our astonishment, he busts out with some perfect French!  Turns out he'd been listening to French for Dummies on his iPod for weeks.  I guess that really works!

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
