It’s always nice to help people with money when you can but most of the time respect, honesty and compassion are what you pay with. New friends will give themselves easily to your endeavours. Give yourself back in any way; share your stoke, your history or your plans and be rewarded.
At times you’ll feel left out when you can’t speak the language. It’s frustrating when a person you’re interested in or who has something important to say will be excitedly speaking at you. The words bounce off and you’re left deciphering hand gestures. Use this as motivation to improve not a reason to avoid Spanish speakers.
Whether you master the language or not the people will continue to help along the way. From town to town, country-to-country you will be passed along friend to friend.
