Wuhan China – Day 5

November 13th, 2010 | by admin |

Today I noticed a few simple things close to my hotel like a driving school and pets for sale. It was Saturday in Wuhan and I worked out my hotel room, did laundry Skyped all my classes at Capital, etc.

Also check out this label.  It is fascinating how translation can be so difficult.  Getting the meaning is not literal for so many concepts between languages. For example:

“Black food has public reputation that black food must be tonic.”

I get what they are trying to state, but it just doesn’t come across well.  I wonder how funny we Americans sound in Chinese when we converse?
