• Tourist's sigs

    Hi all!

    In Russia, some tourists like to leave their signatures in places where
    they attended. For instance, a guy walks in an ancient monastery and
    writes on the wall "Vasya was here. 2013." Do some American tourists
    write anything like this?

    I wanted to translate an anecdote and wasn't sure that I would be
    understood correctly.

    A man told to his friend:
    "Yesterday I read some interesting signatures. 'Here was Vasya.' Here
    was Kolya.'"
    "Well, they are usual sigs, what's interesting in them?"
    "I've read them inside of my cupboard."

    By all!

    Yeah...If it were to happen in The Alamo, in San Antonio, Texas, they'd be tared, feathered and then run out of town on a log. The Alamo is so
    sanctifyed for it's historical value that you're required to speak in a
    low voice, if you have to speak at all.

    This is good. I got a laugh out of it.

    So, what he was saying is that Vasya and Kolya are cockroaches who are
    using your cupboard as a room where you would normally find a toilet?
