When Liz and I were brainstorming some blog ideas with some friends before we left one of the ideas was to document things “Lost in translation;” i.e. things that for whatever reason translate really funny, or don’t seem to make any sense at all.
With that back story, I present the very first episode of “Lost in Translation.”
Throughout the trek in the little villages there have been a number of posters, etc. with community messages on them. Many of them around hygiene or keeping Nepal clean; public service announcements.
Then we found this:
Unfortunately there wasn’t an english translation, but from the illustration it’s pretty obvious what the message is… maybe not.
Anyone wanna take a shot at translating this one for us? Don’t worry if you don’t know Nepali.
