    I understood that just because I spent to much time in SE Asia.

    In early 1985 I was in Metz, France, with my American wife-to-be, but not yet fiancée... named Désirée, by the way... and asked the maid this after the first night...
    "Voudriez-vous changer les draps, s'il vous plaît?"

    I was quite proud of that one. :D

    One of my most interesting conversations was with a girl who joined me at my table in a café in Bern, Switzerland... a very European thing... sharing tables like that. Anyhow, she spoke some English and our conversation was in English, French, and German. What was striking was the Italian influence on her "delivery". Switzerland has 3 official languages... French, German, and Italian.

    3 years living in Germany next to France 1983-1986 gave me some practice in my high school and college language training. And another memorable experience was on a ski lift in Austria with an Asian guy... an American GI I had thought, but he was Japanese and spoke no English! So we used German as a common language.

    I enjoyed Europe while stationed there... and my TDY's to England. It was fun back in 80's and only a few small terrorist groups then... the Red Army most prominent... saw the blast hole in the floor at the Frankfurt airport when I put Desiree on the plane after her 2-year tour ended, but not our relationship's future. :)

    Well for sure you speak one language, that of the "Silver Tongued Devil", how else would you have gotten your better half. Sayonara.
