One thought on “Satellite Update:

  1. Alistair – This sounds like a potentially dicey situation for Mark. He tends to confuse water for many things in different languages, leading to great confusion for the locals and much amusement for me.

    Fort de Douaumont, France

    M: Je voudrais d’eau cartes postales s’il vous plaît.
    P: Pardon?
    M: :slower, holding up two fingers: Je…voudrais…d’eau…cartes…postales…s’il vous plaît.
    P: :looks at rack of postcards, looks at water cooler, looks at me, tilts head: Paarrdooon?
    Me: Il aimerait *deux* cartes postales s’il vous plaît.
    P: Ah, bon! Merci madame.

    TL;DR – Mark wanted to water the man’s postcards which is far better than Mark’s eating the restaurant’s centerpiece a few days later.
