I used to live in Miami, and it's practically a foreign country. When friends came down to visit, I was worried they'd get lost and not be able to ask directions, and that's not an exaggeration. I remember the local Walgreens had no one that could speak English working in it. I'd buy cigarettes by keeping an old pack, showing it to them, and holding up my fingers to show how many. You pick it up after a while, but I still pretended I didn't know any Spanish.
