Where am I now?

As you can see, this blog hasn't gotten any love in many years... But you can now find me on my site jessicatravels.com.

Lost in Translation

"The Edge" in The Oregonian today contained this tidbit:
Officials in Beijing have announced plans to correct some of the city's bilingual signs, including a sign identifying the Park of Ethnic Minorities as "Racist Park" and a sign warning about the hazards of a wet road that reads, "The slippery are very crafty."
This reminded me of a picture Chris took on his recent trip to Shanghai:

The sign reads:
Raise the environment consciousness,
Protect the fine home
Add the green one for the JinQiao,
Make living many penny warm and fragrant
