When I read the post about someone wanting a recommendation for an interpreter, I thought that that seemed foolish. Then I remembered that I met a guy, a few years ago, waiting for a bus in Tirana to Skopje who had been to the Ukraine. He didn't say where he was , but said that he was at a bus station where no one spoke a word of English and he was going crazy. He didn't say how he was able to get his question answered, as it was time to board our bus.
My question is will those of us who only know English have major problems? Are maps available in English? But that won't work , because street signs won't be in English. I guess the answer is to write down - turn left at X Bank, continue to the building with the blue door and on and on
Any other ideas?
