day 36

lost in translation

The first or second day that we were here, we drove out to the workplace and I remember noticing that some of the highway signs had english translations.  "How nice", I thought.  Then I saw a sign that read, "Don't Follow To Clowsely".  I have yet to get a good photo of that sign, but there are certainly some others that we've taken note of.

Hopefully you're not easily offended....

 seems reasonable.

thanks to my colleague Luis for providing me with a couple of these photos.

 

Also, wanted to point out that today brought the worst smog I have seen yet.  The smog report/scale goes from 1 to 500.  Right now, at 9:30pm, it's at 416.  It smells quite bad and you can actually see a haze in the hallways of our office...not so bad at the apartment here at least!

I bought a lightweight mask....I think I might finally need to think about wearing it!

 

Thanks to all for the messages, likes, and words of encouragement!
