Come on in, we’ve got air-condition

I’m visiting Prague this week and have been enjoying wandering around the city. I have run across a lot of German speakers and many of the restaurants have signs in German to lure in potential customers, thus in some ways it feels very much like home.  What I was also noticing was how many places were advertising air-condition. When I first saw this painted on the window at Les Moules, I photographed it, thinking it was a typo (what do you say when something wasn’t typed?!). However, closer inspection of additional restaurant windows revealed that air-condition is the Czech word for “air-conditioning.” Not quite as confusing as a “photo shoot” being called a Shooting or a “photographer” being called a Fotograf/in in German, but still enough to amuse me with thoughts of what the condition of the air is inside these spots!
