Just Too Good


We were leaving Alexandria by train for Cairo and as we waited for our train to arrive, my daughter suddenly broke out laughing and trotted down the platform to take this photo. If you look at the white warning cross carefully, you will see that it reads "Trains Of Beware". Only in Egypt....

No one appears to have read the sign. Except your daughter. Good catch on her part.

The trains in Egypt are something I would like to forget. At least the bathrooms...

I'd rather take the train than the Alex/Cairo road in the summer.

One can definitely see some hilarious "English" in other countries! Good capture!

This sign looks like it was copied from someone who does not speak English and might be dyslectic, no? Here, I have seen some very funny signs on shops in French, translated from the English. The shops thought that the signs were chic, but instead they were very funny (well only if you understood the French.)
