What can I say, I loved visiting India! It was colourful, exotic, rich in history and the food was amazing! If you’d like to read more about Rajasthan, check out this blog post.
And as a good law abiding person in a foreign country, I appreciate clear and concise rules…
This particular place had a whole list of them – in English and Hindi. There are some brilliant ones on here! Apologies if its a little hard to read from the photo but my particular favourites are –
PLEASE DO NOT : Pose danger to the sanctity of the monument
THANKS: For retaining counter foils of admission tickets till the visit
I’m not sure exactly what I’d need to do to pose a danger to sanctity of the monument? And I definitely retained my counter foils…
This sign gave me a mental image of tourists rubbing that tricky itch that you just can’t reach… on the monument.
Another example of Indian-English – I love that they have words we don’t use!
One especially for the ladies… (luckily it is a don’t ask, don’t tell policy)
And you’d better take of your lather and stop chewing pan or other stuff! For the record, my suggestion as item 7 is to please get one of the 125 million English speakers in your country to proof read your signs 🙂
And finally, it always comes back to food. Perhaps you would you like some Potato Waffers from the mini-bar?
And how about dinner tonight? Oh boy! Think I’ll have the Vag Pakora and a Diet Cock!
