Legs aching and feeling ravenous from the trek, you wonder if you'll
be pitching your karpa for one more night. Suddenly the truck
stops and it's clear that Iawa and kuka mati are on the
cards. Anaychayki you say gratefully with a full belly, and
that's when your dinner host offers you a bed for the night...You
realize it's true - a few Quechua words can work wonders!
Our phrasebooks give you a comprehensive mix of practical and social words and phrases in more than 120 languages. Chat with the locals and discover their culture - a guaranteed way to enrich your travel experience.
Trekking in the Andes will give your legs a workout, and this phrasebook will work your conversational skills at the same time. Word up on the Native American language of South America: you don't want to be tongue-tied on a mountain and have to charade 'I have a cramp', do you?
