Do we speak oddly?
Last time we were in America and Canada, I don’t recall being asked to repeat ourselves sooo many times. It must the accents, everytime we go into a restaurant they ask us to repeat ourselves.
Maybe it is becuase we aren’t yelling!
When we were in Cambria (just before Hearst Castle), we went out for dinner and we could hear the conversation at the other tables – people were speaking sooo loudly! Maybe it is just us.
