I always appreciate a bilingual menu. I can’t remember the last time I ate at an “American cuisine” restaurant in the states that had a menu with translations into Spanish, German or French. Apparently other countries are more considerate than we are.
However, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying the translations. Restaurants in China had my favorite incomprehensible menu items of “lilly bread over snow mountains” and “Backs of beans on rosy waves,” but here are some good ones from Spain:
Can I get the Italian creaking mass on top of the hot daggerboard back? And a side of habitats tender? Thanks so much. Sounds delicious.
I like this sign as well. I’m giving it the Princess Bride “I don’t think those words mean what you think they mean” prize.

I love this picture from my last morning in Barcelona when I got up early to see the Picasso museum and watch the city wake up.
And this street art from Granada.
The painted street signs in Madrid
Unnecessarily beautiful street lamps of Barcelona
And the ridiculous “sidewalks” in Ronda
Despite all these posts and pictures, there were so many things I didn’t get to see in Spain so I know I’ll be back.
This feels like a good post to end on because I’m going to take a blog break for the month of September. I’ll be back in October.
