Online translators can be a wonderful thing! Although I once received travel directions to a hotel in Madrid which said that the hotel was near "Shuffles Airport" (Barajas is the name of the airport, barajar means "to shuffle"). So use with care.

I like that one - must remember it. It's better than my recent favourite "El Parque de Bomberos del Mar Menor" - "The park of firemen of the Lesser Sea" :)

Jane - did you ever solve the mystery of that fishy San Pedro tourism thing? Lost now so I can't remember what it was all about!

No I didn't. I can't remember what it was now either- some weird mistranslation. Similar to you on another thread, I think learning other languages is fascinating (well I would I suppose, wouldn't I?) and I especially like working out WHY people reach odd conclusions about translations - but that one had me and many other minds defeated. Put it down to San Pedro - there are some very odd people round here. :?
