I am going to Serbia for 5 days to act as a translator for one of our Italian engineers,
All week I have tried to point out the full extent of my Italian. ie
Destra a sinistra,
Scusi, io sono inglese,
Dov’è il bagno? / dove è mia moglie?
Mi piace / non mi piace,
Tsk, no, ho capito niente (with a shake of the head)
and various swear words that I have picked up along the way.
I thought the office was winding me up, but no today I have just received the flight and hotel booking.
It has reinforced my opinion that Italians are Pazzo. Oh need to add Pazzo to the above list.
