Only TZ. At one point, we were only miles from the Ugandan border.

I'm looking forward to reading your stories and seeing pics if you have any to share...

There's already a few stories from my trip in this thread:

http://forum.interference.com/showth...hreadid=153425

But I will post some more and some pictures, but I have SO many and I have to try and get them all in order first...


Btw, when I went to Masai Mara I was in Tanzania for about 5 minutes - illegally!

anyone from the former yugoslavia and can give me the exact spelling?
OK



I'm guessing he said "puši mi kurac".

Apart from "achtung baby", my favourite is "porca miseria" from Italian. (why is it everyone seems to remember the cursing in every language they learn?)

On second thought, my favourite foreign language word is excrementum from Latin.

Well, unfortunately my Italian ex-boyfriend taught me how to curse like a sailor in Italian. So my favorite is:

Mona testa di cazzo!

I think it's too filthy to translate here even though I shouted it from the rooftops in Italy to amuse him and his friends.

Japanese:

Eeetoo (pronounced eh toe)


Translation:

Ummmm or uhhhhh or hmmmm


Probably one of the words or phrases I've used the most in speaking Japanese.

Mater facit. Sounds dirty but in latin it just means "mother makes" However my latin may be a little rusty... haven't taken it in 6 years about and that's the only word I pulled out of the class.
