Two signs encountered by Sir Terence Clark in his travels. The first, which he is pointing to, means "female saluki" (I know Terence through the dogs-- he is another scholarly dog traveller). It is in Tunisia.

The second is in Kashgar--the Chinese consider our noses huge. (The Han at least-- I rather doubt the often hawk- nosed local Uighurs do). Betsy Huntington was born in China (as was Libby's mother-- actually connections!) She often said that the first thing she learned from playmates was that her nose was too big.
