Strange emailing, bad reading skills

Asking around for hotel fares in Sri Lanka threw up something surprising yesterday. The email I sent was in English but I got a reply in Dutch. Not perfect Dutch but not as bad as a Google translation. Not Flemish and Not Afrikaans. Dutch. How did they figure this out?

Our names are Dutch, but we could be from somewhere else. Did they check our IP adress? Dit they Google us?


It was in my Email. I had said that we were coming from Holland.

The lesson: Pay more attention! Bloody hell.
This is what waiting a day to post is good for. Learning the hard way.
