I was opening letters at work on Friday and was a bit surprised when I saw this stamp on a letter from Albania. Apparently 50 Leke is worth about 5 cents.I’m not sure what the connection between young Harry and Albania is but I suppose it beats a portrait of ex-King Zog.
And on scrawled on a sign at the entrance to Via Appia Antica was this rather touching plea – though given the speed with which on coming traffic approaches the marito would have to have keen sight or be, like us, on foot.
And my first thoughts about how this sign outside a restaurant should be translated had me wondering if as advertising it was just a tad defeatist. However Qui nun se more ma does not mean – as I first thought – No one dies here anymore..
What it means, very loosely translated, is: Here no one will starve to death.
Silly observations that suggest perhaps I should get a more interesting life but ….
