Nein, but our charade skills are second to none.
When we went through Quebec two summers ago to Translab, the folks were surpringly helpful. We managed to find food, shelter and petrol. Life was good.
Funny story. I was paying for gas and a lady approached me. She began a conversation in French, which I couldn't respond to her. Her english was actaully quite good, and her hand gestures even better.
Basically, by way of extending her arms out to full extension, she had taken note of how wide-as*ed Blaster's BMW was.
