    На всякий случай - правильный вариант, как это должно было писаться )) :

    Значит по-русски базаришь, да? Ну и как ты сюда попала?

    Not to say this is wrong, but I would have translated it like:

    "So you speak Russian, right? Well, how did you end up in this place?"
    "get here" - implies that this place is not supposed to be for people like huny007, or at least very difficult to get here

    I'd say "how did you end up here" is a little more fluid whilst still not conveying a suggestion of restriction.
