A friend – Evgenia Manolova, owner of Atlas Travel , recently made a trip to the Himalayas. She talks with excitement & enthusiasm about this challenge…and is thinking of making it to the top of Everest  one day. Shared a number of photos. This one – the snow reflecting the sun – made me speechless!

Google Translate

واتمنى لكم لطيفة في اليوم!

Above decorative writing is how Google Translate renders “I wish you a nice day!” from English to Arabic. A native speaker notices the wrong sequence of words but says it literally means “And wish you pleasant in today”. Pretty close. One gets the point. Google Translate does online translation from/to Bulgarian, as well – Пожелавам ви приятен ден!
