Of all the things that I’ve thought to be wary of at a funfair, I can honestly say catching leprosy wasn’t amongst them. Surely it’s not so widespread to necessitate every ride in the fair to be labelled with the following (click on it to enlarge).
So I need some volunteers. Can someone please render the Arabic into a more logical English warning?
I’ve finally got around to making another compilation of Saudi signs. There’s some repetition of some that have been posted on here previously but I wanted to gather all the signs that weren’t part of the first compilation.
I’ve tried to add different captions though and there are a fair few “previously unseen”, so I hope it will still be viewable.
Here’s the link:
And here’s the link to the first album, in case anyone hasn’t seen it.
Can anyone provide a better translation of this sign?
One that might give us some insight into what we’re being advised not to do?
From the picture that accompanier-ed this infomercial my best guess is that we’re being admonished against throwing plastic bags onto BBQ’s whenever we’re near the seafront (a most heinous of crimes, if ever I could imagine one).
Now, whether or not such ceremonial bag-burning is permitted at other venues, well – I just don’t know.
