My hub and I are on a 7 day UNESCO culture tour of lovely Morocco. Our Moroccan tour guide doesn't speak English or Dutch, so Hub is my translator. We have only been in Morocco since 10:00 a.m., but I have heard a whole lot of German, since this is a German tour.
When we signed up for this tour several months ago, we were promised an English or Dutch speaking tour guide. As we chose to join the tour group in Dusseldorf, Germany, our tour companions are all Duitsers who so far only speak German.
Oh, the waiters and hotel staff will speak French to us, so that works for us. Although this evening at dinner my husband's best French was answered in English by the waiter.
So will it be "guten abend," "good evening," or just "bonsoir"?
