Cross-cultural confusion:
signs translated for tourists

- Courtesy Jessie

in an greek tailor shop:
because of a big rush, we will execute costomers in strict rotation

an italian laundry:
Ladies, leave your clothes here and spend the afternoon having a good time.

a danish airline:
we take your bags and send them in all directions

a moscow hotel room:
if this is your first visit to the USSR, you are welcome to it.

a detour sign in japan:
stop: drive sideways.

My comments: in case of translation error... tuorists please ignore and continue at your own discretion...
