I've just got to tell someone. I just Googled to check some info. for a translation I'm doing about a new museum in Spain. Found the website, in both Spanish and English.
The English translation was appallingly bad, but the bit that caught my eye said the museum had "a flirtatious cellar" attached.
When I checked the Spanish, it said "una coqueta bodega".
How lovely. Reminiscent of Edward Gory's creepy and curious cartoons?
Regards,
Jenny.
