When I discovered this week’s WordPress photo challenge theme was “foreign”, I had a lot of thoughts going through my mind at first. Eventually I decided to have a little fun with the theme and I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
Foreign: Nutella – the best food to come out of Italy. After pizza of course. And pasta.
Foreign: Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This is one of my very favorite stories, one about an aviator – a foreigner to most of you unless you’re French – and a little prince in a foreign country. Creative, poetic and simply beautiful.
Foreign: L’etranger by Albert Camus
Etranger has two translations in English, depending on its meaning: stranger or foreigner. Camus used this title especially because of its double meaning. His character lives in a foreign country and he also doesn’t fit in a normal society. This made it difficult for English translators to pick the right title originallyand the book was published as both The Stranger and The Foreigner for a number of years. Today publishing companies have agreed The Stranger is the better fitted title.
Of course, I saved you the best for last.
Foreign: Pandas hanging out on the roof of a shop in California
Now that’s a lot of pandas, huh?
These pandas are sure to make you look twice as you walk by this shop in the small town of Idyllwild, California. They’re completely out of place and quite a foreign sight, but I think they’re brilliant in attracting potential customers.
