And the Taxi driver said...

On Monday, I took Shani, Alissa and Binyamin to the center of Sofia to see the sites. On the way, we were talking in the taxi about different things -all in Hebrew. At some point, Binyamin said that it's a lot of fun when you can talk when people can't understand you.

At that point, the taxi driver turned to me and said in Bulgarian "I understand Hebrew" - and then turned to the kids and said (in Hebrew) "Ma Nishma?" (How are you?). He said that he has an uncle who lives in Tel Aviv-Yaffo.....

A good lesson for all of us - always remember that you don't always know who can understand what you're saying - so don't say anything that you would regret afterwords!
