Lost in translation

Mirjam (pointing at a picture of a beefsteak with fries and salad): I would like this please.

Waitress: ok

Waitress starts walking away.

Marcel: Please, can I also order something? (not in these words, much simpler).

Waitress comes back and looks at the item pointed out by Marcel.

Waitress nods and walks away.

So then we wonder what we will finally get.

Results:

  1. Two plates with a battered and fried fish, chips and salad. Close, but not really.
  2. One plate with the Lao beef salad. At least she got this right.
It was good, funny and quite expensive for Laotian rates.
