Lost in Translation
50 - Parking Prohibited
photo credit: Shalom Berger
location: Gush Etzion
Translation should be: Parking Prohibited in the Marked Area
In Hebrew "lachanot" means "to park"
"Lachanoot" means "to the store"
The Hebrew words are written with the same letters but different vowels
The sign maker probably used Google translate and not a human translator
Second mistake: wrote "market" instead of "marked"
