New friends

As Yvonne and I were walking through Augsberg talking in English, a small girl looked up at me and said defiantly, in German, “I don't understand anything you are saying.” I knelt down and replied in broken German, “I'm sorry we're talking in English.” Her mother said something to her and the girl said in English, “My name is Katarina.” I said my name is Alicia and she ran into my arms and gave me a kiss. Katarina continued to show off her English by saying, very well, “Do you know the muffin man.” We made new friends today.
