Mr Max, as I am allergic to horses, I am most certainly not on one, high or otherwise. As for my eyes, my opticain assured me only 2 months ago I will make it to a ripe old age with the need for glasses.
My point was, Canarians have no problem following these messages, so I suggest you learn better Spanish so you too can listen at high speed!! You cannot expect a culture to change its habits to suit the foreigners. The vans ALWAYS zip about, babbling away and as I said, I rarely manage to catch what they say, but my OH and all the other locals have no problem.
