  1. What is the language used in your workplace? With Spanish, French, Dutch. German, Finnish. and English, not to mention Italian, Portuguese, and Danish people shown in your photographs, the cacophony must resemble the Tower of Babel. I see that the Viewgraph is in English. Deciding on a dinner menu must be difficult.
