Make a Pledge

My pledge is: Talk to the locals

People often appreciate being approached in their language.  Speaking the local lingo goes a long way. The locals will really appreciate it and will give you a warm welcome. It will also help stop you getting ripped off in the local shops and markets. Speaking a few words is also a great way to gain an insight to cultures and way of life.

I pledge to talk to the locals in the local lingo.
