English Signage in non-English Countries

I thought this might make for an interesting thread.

Looking through the various photo threads over the last few years I'm amazed at how often English signage has popped up in countries around the world.

English is the international language so it shouldn't be much of a surprise, but I'm still amazed at how things change over the years.

Thought I'd start off with a little HK. Being a former English colony, it's not too surprising to see English throughout.

From France. Although looking through that particular set of photos (http://www.flickr.com/photos/nicolas...th/2906439173/), I see the F-bomb in nearly every pic....maybe it's now a French word lol!

It was very interesting.

This thread should grow bigger.
