Whilst having a wander around Antalya yesterday I noticed an advertising sign for a doctor. On the first floor balcony on the left of the pink apartment block is a sign proclaiming that this is where you can have a consultation with

Doktor Mustapha Kunt - Ortopedi ve Travmotoloji Uzmanı

If you doubt me, Google the name.

Anyone else got any that they've seen themselves? Not copied and pasted from the www.

I have a photograph of my husband standing outside a bookshop in Esberg, Sweden. The name above the shop is Boghandel. Maisie

Must be in Denmark, not in Sweden, in Sweden it would be bok....
:blink:

The relationship between Sweden, Norway and Denmark is similar to relationship between Scotland, England, Wales etc. - so please no mistakes, precision required!

A "boghandel" is a Danish phenomenon. There are no any Swedish members here so I feel I have to protect there reputation.:eek:

Not an "unfortunate name" as such but interesting nonetheless that Bruce Forsythe is an anagram of "talentless b*****d!"

Martyn & I use that as our quiz team name in turkey. Twice we've won and the poor girl has announced it over the microphone without realising.

Bart Simpson actually used it in one episode too :biggrin:

hachris - sorry, must have been in Copenhagen then. It was such a long time ago and we visited both countries the same year. The photograph is actually black and white, though, not sepia! Maisie
