Lost in Translation

Just a few more quirky things to share from my trip to France, before I forget…

We had one delayed flight, in Germany, so my sister wanted to call her daughter to let her know we’d be arriving late. Techno geniuses that we are…we couldn’t figure out how to use her cell phone in Europe. Wendy went into an airport restaurant to ask for help.

Wendy to a waitress: “Do you speak English?”

Waitress: “Yes.”

Wendy: “Can you help me make a phone call from Germany to France?”

Waitress: “No. We only have cappaccinos.”
