Did I just buy myself some CRAP? Google Translate to the rescue!

Until recently we were only allowed travel within our own county, due to COVID-19 restrictions, but this week travel restrictions have been lifted. So I drove to the next county (Carlow) where my favourite east European shop, Moldava, is situated. I bought lots of things I had missed for months there. Here is one of them. Looks like I bought some crap, right? (Scroll down)

But... Google Translate to the rescue! Have you used the 'Instant translate' function on your Android phone? Holding the phone camera to the image in question translates the words in real time. It's so cool, I really love it. I have used it many times when travelling, to translate a menu! 

In this case, it is translating from Romanian, and you can see below that 'crap' is in fact 'carp' (remarkably similar words, but what a difference in meaning 😀 ) So, with the aid of technology, we can see that what I bought (Salata cu icre de crap și ceapă) is in fact a carp caviar and onion salad! Gotta love Google Translate. And I love carp roe salad too 🙂
