But still, I have what to tell concerning this unpleasant topic. The case is that a few years ago I went on a small trip with a friend of mine and with our kids. We went to Spain for a week. The country is really gorgeous, all these golden sandy beaches and cooling water. It seemed to me that we had got into the paradise. But the next day after our arrival, it turned into hell for a couple of hours. The reason was that the climate of the resort spot appeared to be inappropriate for the kid of my friend and he fall ill with fever. We had, of course, the insurance package and it was supposed that our agent would solve all the problems, but we had to deal with everything on our own. Our agent took a leave just after our check-in.
So, I can say English of the Spanish in the town we stayed in was not so good, as their understanding of it. Thus, it was even harder to arrange everything. Luckily, we've found a doc with a good command of English who was a real pro in his field, so that we could spend the rest of our vacation enjoying the sun and the warmth.
