Lovely Lilt

Sitting here at SFO waiting to board the flight to London my ears are filled with the lilt of so many different British accents. I believe the family sitting in the waiting area next to me is speaking Welsh.

Living in the UK I never actually heard the language spoken, although I did see it written. Fascinating as it sounds like some Eastern European language spoken in English, that description doesn't exactly do it justice.
