Lost in translation . . .

09 May

Man, o man! The pictures this creates in my mind are just crazy!

If Tafelberg becomes Table Mountain, then the following should also be true:

Bloubergstrand = Blue Mountain Beach

Witbank = White Couch

Swartruggens = Black Backs

Welkom = Welcome

Vryheid = Freedom

Groot Brak Rivier = Big Dog River

De Rust – The Rest

Bloemfontein = Flower Fountain

Can you think of any more?

BBNut(ter)

PS: The names to the left of the equation is town names in South Africa, thus the names are in Afrikaans which is one of our 11 official languages.
