Some Germans (I told you there were lots of Madeira!) stopped me today for a chat. And I spoke to them all in German! Hooray for me! I’ve still got it; no matter how much Michelle bags me for speaking keine Deutsch! They were such friendly folks and really supportive of my ums and ahs and general mix-ups with Portuguese. It seems like a default reaction - I don’t understand what Celeste (learnt that her name is actually spelt “Selete” yesterday - she showed me where she has carved her name into her knife!) is saying so I start burburling in German. Dunno what’s going on…shit, say every non-English word you know! And go!
