as you all know, welsh is the language of heaven.
it's a magical language that sounds beautiful, even when duffy is singing it.
it is pleasing to look at, even though it resembles a bad hand at scrabble.
here are a few snapshots from my recent trip to y fenni.
even a car park sign looks good in welsh.
ha ha ! look at the welsh word for 'display'... what a great word.
damn i've got to learn to speak at least a little bit of welsh.
wales is a fair trade nation
mae cymru yn genedl fasnach deg
which i must admit, didn't go down too well with my spellcheck just then.
well i never knew that about abergavenny
did you ?
and here's another sign regarding the syrup making skills of the locals
i must admit, i saw nobody in abergavenny last sunday wearing periwigs.
lot's of baseball caps but no periwigs.
even the post office stamp machine held a strange fascination for me
when it's instructions were printed in welsh...
hmmm... at least the welsh for 'hour' looks like the way you pronounce it.
i wonder why there is no welsh word for 'post' ?
and why is 'get more' three words in welsh ?
i need to learn welsh.
another ceramic piece of welshness
i went to abergavenny castle. if you can guess what i bought in the gift shop
there i will give you £100 cash
i'll show you in another post soon, but basically it's something you wouldn't
expect to find in a castle gift shop.
what the what ?!
