Back to DC


Why is it that when you don’t speak a language the foreign announcement is five minutes long but the English version is only 30 seconds?   I’m pretty sure I’m missing out on crucial information.

So many stories to tell;  so many photos to download.

  1. Maybe they assume the people who speak English need fewer explanations? I know French can be convoluted and long when describing a basic boarding procedure, while Japanese is full of “pleases” and “Thank yous.” Hope you had a good flight back. After such a long journey, it’s always good to get back home.

  2. YAY!!!! You’re back!!!!

    LOL re the language differences! Yes…it’s like that with subtitles, too, sometimes. And the “foreign” versions of our commercials.
