Hi Alli. Basically there are more Germans than Brits. The signs are written first in German, then Spanish then English. I am not typical of many English speaking people who expect other countries to speak English first. I have a smattering of German, Spanish and French and enjoy using them. Also, the Germans demand a higher standard of service, which they get. I enjoy meeting people of all nations and have always found the Germans to be very friendly and welcoming.
See you when I get back. Take care.
