You know what I absolutely love? English-language sign blunders. Here are five of my favourites:
At a Japanese hotel:
YOU ARE INVITED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CHAMBERMAID
At a Swiss eatery:
OUR WINES LEAVE YOU NOTHING TO HOPE FOR
At an Acapulco hotel:
THE MANAGER HAS PERSONALLY PASSED ALL THE WATER SERVED HERE
A Bangkok dry cleaner:
DROP YOUR TROUSERS HERE FOR BEST RESULTS
A donkey ride place in Turkey:
WOULD YOU LIKE TO RIDE ON YOUR OWN ASS?
… Anybody know any more?
Gorgeous, which accounts for this hasty posty today. Goin’ out to get me some oxygen and some daylight while it lasts. Temps currently 3 degrees Celsius, partly cloudy skies, hardly any wind. Daybreak was at 9.47 and sunrise at 10.54; sunset is scheduled for 16.21 and nightfall for 17.28.
