Summer Repost No. 1

I’m not on vacation, I’m just very busy because other people are away. Here are some previous Dunglish posts for those who may have missed these classics.

Original post and comments

This cafe in downtown Rotterdam is now closed. I still wonder if the cafe’s name had something to do with it. The word “show” is pronounced as in English, but the word “pain”, referring to “bread” in French, should be pronounced in French.

showpain - cafe name

“The lunchroom with Mediterranean style”. Ouch!

    How very nice – not! I’m really busy with other stuff and I need a new camera as mine was stolen!

    I know this cafe in Rotterdam and I also was wondering about the name… I pronounced it as “Chopin”… but that would be a “piano bar” 😉

    By the way, I like your blog.

    Best regards,
