    ... other issues with the tone in which the word is pronounced, but that’s a whole different story. For example, the word “ma”, surprisingly enough means ”mother” but . . . . . depending on the tone in which one says it, it could also mean horse, hemp or scold and it is often used at the end of a sentence when asking a question.

    ... a railway underpass. The Exhibition area was huge. The scale and number were mind-boggling. The technology to make them was also amazing for 210BC.

Two policeman, one with a loud hailer the other with a cattle ...

    ... the guys arm tattoos but with the language barrier couldn't ask so just started touching them. It feels a bit like being in a zoo, the guide books all say ask before taking photo's of people it's part of being a responsible tourist - no such considerations here!!
