91. Even without that you can do a lot
My wife and I were in Eastern Europe and ended up going to Budapest. Kind of spur of the moment because it was between us and our destination. Not a word of Hungarian between us. Had a great time, learned a bit at restaurants and the hotel but we started with nothing.

I'm totally with you on getting out of expat ghettos, I just wanted people to know that don't need to speak the language to go. We have some great memories because of the language barrier! We were trying to get to an airport at 3 am in Egypt but the only cabbie around spoke no English so we ended up pantomiming airplanes and running around in the street. We all laughed a most of the way there.

With a good attitude and basic pantomime you can go anywhere.
