  1. Sometimes I wonder if I've moved to Shanghai! :)

    Thanks for the correction on the name of that ON town. There was another place called Shale something... so I thought it was some sort of stone.

  6. Needless to say, I am totally at home with bilingual signs. Glad you weren't driving when you shot this, Andy. And speaking of multiculturalism, check out my friend Ruth's multicultural calendar of events site and accompanying blog. ;-)

  8. I've often wondered if the Chinese is the same as what it says in English - or are they having a good laugh?

  10. We have no bilingual signs here in Lexington that I know of, but we do have a good sized Mexican food section in the grocery stores. And heaven only knows where the closest China Town is to us. Do I see you shooting the photo? I think I do.

  13. Not where I live now, but lots when I was residing near Washington, DC. I think the different languages add so much interest to a city.

  14. The Chinese and Filipinos have something in common - they're practically everywhere :) Toronto is one city I dream of visiting one day.

  16. Norway has very few bilingual signs. Actually, the few we do have are mostly located around the major airport outside of Oslo. Even Oslo has hardly any, and that always surprises me.

    I can see you taking the photo in the rear view mirror :-) Nice one!
