Lost in Translation

Finished my first week of arabic.  Unlike last year, I can finally read, and fairly well.  Arabic is hard.  There are a few letters that have no english equivalent.  Sometimes they will write arabic but have it as an english word, which ends up very butchered.  There is also no P sound in arabic which is what lead to this blog.  I managed to find a grocery store I assumed I was very familiar with.  Those who live in my home town, have most definitely shopped there, or even worked there.  This was a bad translation attempt at one of Waunakee’s landmarks...
