When you’re in a different country (or the same country, but a different region), where the language is nominally the same but there are also real differences, what do you do?
Do you stick to your own words, phrases and pronunication? Or do you pick up the same lingo as the locals?
I’m getting a little confused here: do I ask for chips or crisps, or both?
And, perhaps more importantly, do I wear thongs on my feet or as underwear?
