Once you get into Spain, all bets are off. The Spanish don't seem to like to talk to fluent Southern Americans, let alone have to listen to some white dude from California butchering their language... and that is Spanish. Get into Catalan and all that, and not remembering to lisp your "Cs" is the least of your communication problems.
Gave me that much more respect for immigrants in our country trying to learn the language. It is weird that there seems ot be a universal response to be dismissive of someone trying to learn your language who doesn't quite get it, yet. I wish I could be conversationally fluent for just one day.
