Touring museums always triggers in me the desire to converse in another language. I mentioned this to my dear while we were resting and people watching after viewing the Eckersberg exhibition. He just widened his eyes and said he doesn't speak any foreign languages well enough to converse. That is not necessary. My sister an I often carry on conversations that sound like Greek, Spanish, Italian, Hindi with appropriate hand gestures and intonation (and even some correct vocabulary thrown in).
