Spanish / English Pocket Dictionary.
 
Preparing for my Central and South America KLR 650 ride in late Spetember. My Spanish is good enough to get a room and order a beer and ask where the bathrooms are. :=) Anyone have any suggestions/reviews/recommendations for a pocket English-Spanish dictionary for a little extra help? I purchased a VOX mini but it has no "phrase" help at all and I think that would be more important than just word translation. Anyone?

always use Collins Gem. presumably you can get them where you are. most words are translated within a context, eg. push: push on, drive, demand, to push for, etc, etc.

What a coincidence!

Today we picked up a Latin American Spanish phrasebook from Lonely Planet. It sounds like it is exactly what you need. It has phrases for everything from getting directions to border crossings. $8 at finer bookstores everywhere :) Or you can check out www.lonelyplanet.com.

Ekke, Thanks. I met a fellow that had one of those, that is why I realized that my VOX (a literal word translation) would not get it. I am going to hit the bookstores as soon as I can. Thanks again.
