    Lost in Translation :p


    For those who love words and their usage, wonderful English from Around the World -

    In a Bangkok temple :
    IT IS FORBIDDEN TO ENTER A WOMAN,
    EVEN A FOREIGNER, IF DRESSED AS A MAN.

    Cocktail lounge, Norway:
    LADIES ARE REQUESTED NOT TO HAVE CHILDREN IN THE BAR.

    Doctor's office, Rome :
    SPECIALIST IN WOMEN AND OTHER DISEASES.

    Dry cleaners, Bangkok :
    DROP YOUR TROUSERS HERE FOR THE BEST RESULTS.

    In a Nairobi restaurant:
    CUSTOMERS WHO FIND OUR WAITRESSES RUDE,
    OUGHT TO SEE THE MANAGER.

    On the main road to Mombasa, leaving Nairobi :
    TAKE NOTICE: WHEN THIS SIGN IS UNDER WATER,
    THIS ROAD IS IMPASSABLE.

    On a poster at Kencom:
    ARE YOU AN ADULT THAT CANNOT READ?
    IF SO WE CAN HELP.

    In a City restaurant:
    OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK AND WEEKENDS.

    In a Cemetery:
    PERSONS ARE PROHIBITED FROM
    PICKING FLOWERS FROM ANY BUT THEIR OWN GRAVES.

    Tokyo hotel's rules and regulations:
    GUESTS ARE REQUESTED NOT TO SMOKE,
    OR DO OTHER DISGUSTING BEHAVIOURS IN BED.

    On the menu of a Swiss restaurant:
    OUR WINES LEAVE YOU NOTHING TO HOPE FOR.

    In a Tokyo bar:
    SPECIAL COCKTAILS FOR THE LADIES WITH NUTS.

    Hotel, Yugoslavia:
    THE FLATTENING OF UNDERWEAR WITH PLEASURE,
    IS THE JOB OF THE CHAMBERMAID.

    Hotel, Japan:
    YOU ARE INVITED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CHAMBERMAID.

    In the lobby of a Moscow hotel, across from a Russian orthodox monastery:
    YOU ARE WELCOME TO VISIT THE CEMETERY,
    WHERE FAMOUS RUSSIAN AND SOVIET
    COMPOSERS, ARTISTS AND WRITERS
    ARE BURIED DAILY, EXCEPT THURSDAY.

    A sign posted in Germany 's Black Forest :
    IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN ON OUR BLACK FOREST CAMPING SITE
    THAT PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT SEX, FOR INSTANCE, MEN AND WOMEN,
    LIVE TOGETHER IN ONE TENT, UNLESS THEY ARE
    MARRIED WITH EACH OTHER FOR THIS PURPOSE.

    Hotel, Zurich :
    BECAUSE OF THE IMPROPRIETY OF ENTERTAINING
    GUESTS OF THE OPPOSITE SEX IN THE BEDROOM,
    IT IS SUGGESTED THAT
    THE LOBBY BE USED FOR THIS PURPOSE.

    Advertisement for donkey rides, Thailand :
    WOULD YOU LIKE TO RIDE ON YOUR OWN ASS?

    Airline ticket office, Copenhagen :
    WE TAKE YOUR BAGS AND SEND THEM IN ALL DIRECTIONS.
    (Just like British Airways)

    A Laundry in Rome :
    LADIES, LEAVE YOUR CLOTHES HERE AND THEN
    SPEND THE AFTERNOON HAVING A GOOD TIME.

    And finally the all time classic:
    Seen in an Abu Dhabi souk shop window:
    IF THE FRONT IS CLOSED PLEASE ENTER THROUGH MY BACKSIDE.

    Those of us who were not much damaged have been busy helping those unfortunate countrymen, in every little (or big) way we can. Even with humor, when properly shared...

    Thank you for all your support. I know you helped us in your own ways too. Even the kind thoughts for us now is much appreciated.
