Quoting Max - "I am sorry. I don't understand what your problem is."
Seems like fear to me; in this situation, I'd call it xenophobia. Also, Matthew seems to lack curiosity, but that probably is an aspect of fear.
Oh, and I like dosas too. I'm from Los Angeles, a city with uncountable distinctive restaurants serving food from "foreign" lands, cooked by people who may have emigrated from those lands. It's a fabulous food adventure to try all these differing foods, and get to know all these people.
I'm with Aidan on the musicality of spanish, and I near swooned on my first ride in a subway in Rome, at the beauty of the voices speaking italian, probably in several dialects than I'm not canny enough to differentiate, since I can only get the gist of a conversation in italian, or spanish, if people speak slowly - and they usually don't. My italian is better than my spanish, but in both cases my ability falls under the "horrible" category.
