Their collective knowledge of English may prove detrimental to the Spanish only speakers in Mx.
I will ask the natives the next trip there Bear, I have mentioned before that most of them speak ENGLISH. They must be fleeing Phoenix and decided they like Tucson better.

I was at the passport window at a post office yesterday -- the guy inside seemed to be from India (heavy accent too) and he had no time for these people speaking Spanish. Despite my posts here I found myself translating for them - I surprised myself.

You are correct.

Despite it having a large 'Hispanic' population; Gibraltar, unlike the USA, does not officially support the use of any language other than English.

I will be polite and not castigate Tucson up one side and down the other.

Suffice to say; it has all of Phx's drawbacks and many more-----I have lived in both places.
