what's in a sign?
/ Mon, September 13, 2010


Photos taken in Melbourne.

. . . . .

One of the first things I noticed when I stepped on Australian soil (aside from the fact that Aussies drive on the left) is the different terminologies and symbols used on road signs and such.

For example,

footpath = sidewalk,

or takeaway = togo/takeout.

And the one that deems most bizarre by Australians and Americans alike is...

giveway = yield.
