Can I buy a vowel?

We're in Caerleon, Wales, the first stop on Phil's speaking tour of the UK, 1-14 May. We're staying at the Priory Hotel, a former Cistercian monastery. Caerleon was the site of a Roman fortress that was the home of the second Augustan legion from 75 CE until about 290 CE. The Welsh language is inscrutable to someone whose second language is Spanish. This is a great example of its inscrutability.

no kidding on the whole lack of vowels thing. Dude! Have you gotten any pronunciation cliff notes from locals? (also, and unrelated, in your 'what i miss' sidebar you should add Amity :)
