After work today, I got on the bus and scanned my bus card. The bus driver asked me something but I had no idea what he was saying. I responded with “no entiendo” (I don’t understand) and took my seat. Half way through the bus ride I realized that I should take my confusion and use it as an opportunity to practice Spanish. ( I mean hello, I’m in Spain. I should take every opportunity to practice when I can). Photo
I moved to the front of the bus and asked the driver to explain to me what he meant. He told me he was making a joke about the cold weather. When I finally understood I felt triumphant. After the bus driver explained the joke, we continued to talk for the rest of the ride.
Thank you bus driver, you made my day.
