Random Photograph 95 – Snail Travel

Random Picture No. 95 is one in a series of pictures, taken in Liuzhou, which amuse, baffle or otherwise interest me.

Ever wonder who organised that “Slow Boat To China”? I reckon I’ve found out.

The English is a direct translation of the Chinese but ‘snail’ has the same metaphoric connotation in Chinese – slow, slow, slow. – so it seems just as odd a choice in both languages. I might use them when there is somewhere I don’t want to get to.

    If that’s what they specialise in I reckon they deserve success . The opposite of ‘its Tuesday so it must be Rome’ travelling . Slow boats slow itineraries slow meals slow speech slow er , well you get my drift ……
