Still More Wacky Signs

Port Louis, Mauritius, 1991
     I'm busy scanning my slides from previous years, and am now up to 1991. I don't know how many weird signs I have recorded, but it seems enough to commence a new post.
     This one, for example, was a shingle on a store in the capital of Mauritius. Perhaps I should have gone inside to find out just what they were selling. Mauritius, in case you didn't know, is far more multi-racial and multi-cultural than nearly any other country, but it does not appear to be politically correct (at least, it wasn't in 1991). We would never get away with such a sign in Australia.
