FOOTNOTE: CHINA SIGNS

CHINA BLOG 14

Tuesday June 21, 2016

Below is a delightful collection of China ‘SIGNS’ – photos taken by Steve Brown (one of our Mad Midlifers) while on tour with us in China. We’ve added a couple of extras to add to the enjoyment. As Steve says: “The signs represent the difficulty in translating Mandarin to English.”

Thanks Steve – JOHN

About John Cooney

John Cooney and his wife Robyn have enjoyed more than their fair share of travel. They hesitate to call themselves ‘experts’ – but they’ve grabbed every chance that’s come their way to explore new countries, cultures and customs. They’ve had the privilege (both on their own and as the leaders of numerous successful group-tours) to sample many stunning destinations: Europe, the UK, Singapore, Vanuatu, the USA, Israel, Egypt, Africa, Dubai, China, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. And their recent (and most pleasant) memories are of the places ancient-and-modern that border the Mediterranean. John and Robyn are at-home in airports, hotels, cruise ships, and the like … and they know how to make the most of a unique travel opportunity. Travel, they reckon, is an all-five-senses experience – a chance to see, feel, smell, hear and taste the world. And they’ve done it often enough to know for sure: sightseeing with a group of laid-back Kiwis is DOUBLE the fun – lots of laughs, great company, and memories that last forever!

  2. Had many a chuckle as I read through these. Especially amused at item No 2 regarding old people on the escalators. Norma
