Quick question though, not sure I saw where this was answered before, but where did you learn Spanish?

Thanks
Hola QforA,

I am self taught on the road. I find translate.google.com more useful than Spanish primers for the phrases I need like ┐Puedo acampar en su terreno? (can I camp on your land?)

And fellow ADVriders will help fill in the slang in their ride reports if you read enough of them. You won't find chinga, puta and mierda and all the other useful slang on Rosetta learning tapes.

Best,
John Downs
