Useful phrases...

I picked up a Latin American Spanish phrasebook for the upcoming trip to Peru today. I opened it at random (I swear!) and there on the page were the following useful phrases:
  • ¿Tienes un condón?
  • Lo siento, no puedo levantarla

Which mean...
  • Do you have a condom?
  • I'm sorry, I can't get it up

Very useful. Right up there with the "Dealing with the police" section of my Indonesia phrasebook which had entries like:
Sila bisar boleh bayar denda sekarang?
or...
Can I pay an on-the-spot fine?
