Travel diary II

National Airport is full of shops catering to frequent travellers, especialy business travellers. On the way to my gate, I passed one such shop, Rosetta Stone Language Learning, which sells instructional software to teach different languages. As I walked past the shop, I noticed that on the front of their counter, they listed many of the different languages that could be learned with their software: espanol, tieng viet, cymraeg...

Wait, what?

I stopped to take a closer look. Yep, it said cymraeg. Who knew there was such a demand in the business community for Welsh speakers?
