I once again find myself in an unfamiliar place with a language that I do not understand. This is not something that is new to me, but it has gotten me thinking about how far one can get without using language. It is not – nor never was – my forte. Though I have improved on my ability to pick up languages I have not improved as much as I probably should have. However, what I have improved on over the years is my ability to read body language. This has proved a very useful skill to acquire.
