I saw plenty of signs while vacationing in the UAE.
And of course, these signs were important.
For example, here's a typical stop sign, one at a corner in my sister's apartment complex.
Yes. Bright idea.
I later thought of how hard this would be once we went to the pork store.
The street signs at the roundabouts were especially confusing.
There was much advertisement.
(Let's not even talk about me trying to read the license plates on the cars).
(There were a lot of twin buildings - two buildings side by side that were exactly alike. That was a trip!)
I must've driven my sister crazy with my trying to figure out all the signs.
After a week, I figured that was what the english translation on the signs was for: for people like me who can't read that arabic! And that's good enough for me.
