Traveling Engrish

There's so much I've got to write about Guangzhou and I'm thinking I'll have to do it in segments. So for now, you can enjoy this little post about the Engrish we saw during our trip until I get around to writing about vomiting giraffes, Guangzhou cuisine (yummy!), the embassy and more.

This first photo was taken as we waited to board our flight to Guangzhou in the Qingdao airport. If you are at the Qingdao airport and are hungry, please come eat at the "restauran." Or maybe someone was so hungry, they ate that second "t." They got it right in Korean at least.

Also spotted in the Qingdao airport on a TV in one of the waiting areas. Avoid collision. Yes, because everyone I know has a lifelong dream of intentionally smashing into TVs that are so large they are hard to miss.

 We found "Plant Viagra" in the menu of a nice Guangzhou-style cuisine restaurant we went to. It was on the up and up. Ha! Ok, lame puns aside, the food there was awesome. I'll write about it in another post.

 This came to us from our airplane snack package. It makes me think of one of my favorite people ever - my friend Kary Drake - because the Spice Girls will always be her favorite. This is an additional seasoning packet should you wish for your in-flight noodles to make you cry.

 There is nothing Engrish about this subway sign but I just loved the photos. These kill me. I love the stick figure person laying down on the seats. Even more so, I love the people swinging from the bars and hand grips. I love that people are so primitive in our world that subway cars need to put things like this up so people know how to behave.

 There's nothing too Engrish about this one either except that the holy panda triplets at the zoo recommend this dish. I laughed so hard at this. Brilliant marketing.

And finally, the best for last. I heart this. We saw this at the zoo on the way to the Safari on Wheels portion. Which I will most definitely tell you about in another post. I want this on a t-shirt. You know you do too.
