The people who broke into my home took a framed picture of my children that had been tucked away out of view and put it face down out in the open. This incident occurred as I'm carrying out an investigative reporting project into Mexico's most high-profile human rights crime.

Ever feel like you're speaking another language? Well, sometimes you are which is why we asked the members of travel website, Trippy.com to tell us about times they tried to use the local tongue and got, well, totally tongue tied.
