Dictionary.com defines "Xenophile" as: 'a person who is attracted to foreign peoples, cultures or customs.'
I have travelled to 6 of the 7 continents with my family in the last 10 years, and I am always fascinated with the differences in the cultures...what they eat, wear and drive, where they live, and what they say! I have taken photos of signs in many of the countries that tickle my funny bone, or make me pause to consider. They are so unlike our culture, and yet so similar. You don't need fiction to make you laugh...the jokes are out there in real life. Here they are below:
The Cotswolds, England: Boys will be boys!
The Cotswolds, England: All right...pay up!
London, England: The Victorian and Albert Museum...Tributes to Man's Best friend.
The Tower of London (England): While awaiting execution....someone made his mark.
Haberton Estancia, Gable Island: Think about this one for a minute..
Peninsula Valdez: This was the exception to the rule in Argentina!
THE MIDDLE EAST:
Cana near Bethany, Israel...that's what I call aged wine!
Sea of Galilee, Israel: Say what?
Near Petra, Jordan: How late?
Sardis, Turkey: Or is it "Fake Genuine"?
Top of Mt Sinai, Egypt: Frappuccino, Anyone?
Bethlehem, Israel: Stolen Identity
