Finally! A conversation in Spanish!

So at the car place today, we finally had a conversation completely in spanish. The lady behind the counter gave us the schpiel about milage and such. We rented the car, payed, filled out paper work, and the whole nine yards in Spanish. The best part was we didn't fell intimidated. I mean sure, we didn't get every last little thing, but we kept up. There were a couple of words I understood, but can't remember, for things like deposit, insurance, and in case there is a rollover accident and the car is destroyed, but at no point were we lost. A nice change from our usual conversations that go one of two ways. First, we speak Spanish and are answered in English, or second, we speak Spanish, they ask us where we are from, we answer, and they speak English. Who knew it was so hard to speak Spanish in Argentina!
