  1. Hi everyone, This happened several times to me recently, but I cannot recall it's happening in the past here. Someone in a local store looks at me when it's my turn and begins speaking to me in English. Not Spanish, but English! Okay, so my Spanish isn't great, but I can understand and can speak okay, especially when it comes to daily life. San Ramon isn't exactly a hotbed of tourism, so I wonder if this is happening to my fellow expats in other non-tourist areas. Comments? (and, by the way, my response is usually to respond in my bad Spanish, though the first time this happened to me, I was so startled that I answered in English.And the response on the part of the clerk -- in Spanish -- is usually, oh, you speak Spanish?) saludos cordiales, Gayle
