27 / 61

One of the big attractions of SFBay area is the cultural diversity.

Did an informal quantitative study during a local ride yesterday: kept track of the languages involved in snatches of conversation overheard in passing.

Of 61 conversations sampled, 25 involved languages other than English, and 2 involved non-US English variants.

Breakdown by language frequency: English (including UK and AU variants); Spanish (variants unknown); Chinese (variants unknown); Tagalog; Russian; Japanese; French.
