Hi

Hi ladies and gentlemen,

I used to come to Geneva quite a lot, I worked for LEM (Liason Electronique Mechanique), and electronics manufacturer which is practically next door to the Rolex factory - no watches ever fell over the fence!

From the window was Mount Blanc, and we often went to old Geneva for meals, and even at restaurants at the lake as well, it was a very beautiful place and I miss it - although I was a little surprised at the level of graffiti to be found!

Anyway, I wondered if someone may be so kind as to help me with my modest request, and this is to know how to say in German "he talks with the animals" as per Dr Dolittle (the play).

I am ashamed to say my German is very poor and I would not wish to try to use an online translator, since their German is even worse than mine.

Thank you,
David
