Quote by Mark Twain in German

“Je mehr Vergnügen Du an Deiner Arbeit hast, umso besser wird sie bezahlt.”

(The more you enjoy your work, the more you get paid.)

– Mark Twain

Men At Work

A couple of days ago, I observed some increased traffic in our cul-de-sac and then saw these German men at work.

Men at work in Germany

While water came squirting out of the ground, both uniformed men just watched it. To be fair, this still life must have been part of their job or they took it Immer mit der Ruhe, so a German saying goes.

One man in squatting position and holding a hammer and the other one standing there with hands in his pockets.

Good things come to those who wait.

Frankfurt Airport City

This past Thursday, we had to take our 11th grade son to the Frankfurt Airport for his flight to Johannisburg.

On the way from the Parkhaus to Terminal 2, we encountered these signs many times.

The Squaire at Frankfurt Airport City

At first glance, the i in Squaire looked like a misspelling. But then I noticed the term New Work City, also a play on words, I’d suppose.

The airport is dotted all over with these signs making it a real linguistic eyesore. But I am sure we all will get used to it.
