learn with me

For today's Spanish lesson, I learned something highly alarming. People often joke about the phrase "Donde esta el bano?" I'm unsure of the spelling, or even if the usage is correct, but it's considered the most important phrase to know, for if you can pull it off sounding anything kinda sorta like the proper phrase, you'll be likely to find some one who can point a finger in the direction of the bathroom, hopefully. Here's the alarming part. In Spain, they don't use bano. Apparently, the common terms are more like "aceos" and "servicios". This is all I know. My world has been rocked.
