Travel Tuesdays #15: A Sign




This photo was taken on the Great Wall of China at Badaling, in September 2008. I'd love to know whether the Chinese text translates the 'please'.

Foreign signs are always most entertaining!

My Chinese is very rusty -- i.e. non-existent as I studied *Japanese* for one semester -- but I'm positive the first three characters translate as "thunderstorm".

It says "Try a Macdonald's New Big Mac, just 2500 yen.".

I shall definitely not use my cell now when I'm in a thunderstorm whether I'm on the Great Wall (which I did enjoy visiting even if it was teeming with other people) or indeed anywhere else in the world.

I would probably get electrocuted before I found help to read it for you :)

Like David Sedaris's "When You Are Engulfed in Flames," about his experiences in Japan while he quit smoking.

Good safety tip. :)

That's funny. Did you have a great time? I would love to go there.
