This has a twist. The two men are from BBC Mundo, the Spanish language BBC. The goal is to speak only Spanish on their trip across the nation. Read the article, no point in me giving the rest away.

Once they get to Texas, they won't have any problem at all with the rest of the trip. There are lots of places in California (and, for that matter, the rest of the Southwest)where one never hears a word of English.

That's true, because West of El Paso, they are strictly following the border.

Yeah, they'll simply fly through the west coast!

When I was driving to Australia I met 2 guys and a gal in Athens, they were cycling from England to New Zealand, we met one of them again in the centre of Iran. God it was HOT! I really did admire their stamina.

They should find the Cuban community in Florida accomodating. Also the Puerto Rican communities in NJ. But GOD knows why anyone would want to go to NJ!
