We let out our rooms on AirBNB. It has given us a good income and we have met lots of interesting people from all over the world: France, Spain, Germany, China, India, USA, and other places. Sometimes there are language difficulties but in the main they put us to shame with their amazing knowledge of English.
This week we had a lady from Spain. I speak a bit of Spanish but as usual, didn’t need to use it. A couple of nights ago she came down stairs to the kitchen, where Whizz, Mavis and I were eating dinner.
‘What is the name of the Indian?’ she asked, gesturing in the direction of the Indian restaurant a few yards away.
‘The Haldi.’ I replied, upon which, the girl went upstairs and knocked on the door of the family room. ‘Excuse me, The Haldi,’ she said to the guy from Calcutta, who had rented the room for a few days, ‘Would you mind moving your car?’
