The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

From our recent trip Posted by Picasa

"Bite the wax tadpole" is a rough translation for one of the names previously used by Coca-Cola to translate the name of their produce into Chinese. The original Chinese is koukē-koulà (口蝌口蜡), which does approximate the sound of "Coca-Cola" quite closely, and which might more literally be translated as "mouth tadpole, mouth wax". When it was discovered that this name had an unappetizing sound, Coca-Cola changed their translation to kěkou-kělè (可口可乐), meaning roughly "tasty and fun", after which the beverage became increasingly popular in China.
I'll put up more stuff another night . . . for now -sleep!
