Say What?? Travel Photo: Tap Water

The World Expo. When Shanghai hosted last year, China saw it as an opportunity to show the world that they still got it after the glitz and glamour of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. After all, with sites like these, the foreigners were bound to come in droves, right?

In fact, to prepare for all those visitors, China deployed an army of sign correctors throughout Shanghai. They may be notorious for their strange English (known as Chinglish) translations (as this series has shown), but they were determined to make things pritine and perfect!

Unfortunately, a few signs slipped through the cracks, including at the Expo itself! Like this cute little thing right by the sink in the bathroom!

"Saving Use of Water"

So, please turn off the water?
