This afternoon we had coffee & cakes with our Argentinian-Danish neighbours. For the past 15 years we've had a wide range of international next-door friendships. In Beijing they were Malaysian or Czech; in Bangkok, French, Japanese and Austrian; only in Tokyo were they actually Japanese. Carlos doesn't speak much English so we did our best in Spanish but mostly Marie-Louise interpreted. I've been to Denmark just the once, years ago, but remember being struck by not only how many people speak English, but speak it really well.
