How to access American internet sites while in Spain?

Asked by brownlemur (4086points) September 23rd, 2007

My girlfriend is in Spain right now and she is having difficulty accessing gmail and other sites, it just takes her to the Spanish gmail site. Is there a way around this?

go to, she will be rerouted to the spanish and there will be a link (in spanish) that says “google in english.” she can access gmail from there.
