I don’t have much to say about this episode, except that I’m really glad to finally get a chance to use all of my knowledge of European geography. I expect many Austrians will be delighted when we mention their capital city of Madrid. Well, not all of them, but the ones who are used to the ignorant American tourists who visit the Eiffel Tower and are always driving on the wrong side of the road and who visit without bothering to learn any German. To those weary Aussies, I offer the standard heartfelt greeting of the traveling American: Hola, amigo! Yo voy a ser visitado en su paàs auspicioso buscando el cuarto de baà±o para cumplir con las prostitutas. Â¿Puede usted indicarme dà³nde està¡ el mà¡s cercano hermana?
I really hope this smooths things out between us. After all, Europe is my favorite country.
