English speaking people!

My friend Sue and I were trying to find some children's clothing stores in Ginza today. We were walking down the street chatting and a girl hollers at us, "English speaking people!" Looking desperate, she asked us if we could direct her and her friends to a particular train station. She had her map, I pulled out my Tokyo Atlas ( I am learning to love this book of neighborhood maps) and together the three of us sent them in the right direction. She was so grateful and I knew exactly how she felt. It was nice to be on the other side for a change.
