Bom Dia Francisco,
I sometimes take a picture of a sign because I want to remember the details, but I'd never thought of posting it on TE.
Regards, Pat

Default To plimrn: picture of a sign

"I'd never thought of posting it on TE".
Why not?
TrekEarth is intended for travel photographs that teach us about the world
That sign teaches us about how byzantine a timetable can be in Athens. I'm even thinking about posting a timetable in Lithuania, to compare with this.
As a photograph, I know this is not a great picture.
Regards,
F.

It is such an inside joke that I completely missed the joke. I think it goes as follows: Byzantine means complicated and the sign says open every day but closed on Mondays. Did I get it? Sometimes I'm a little slow :-)
Regards, Pat

Yes, but not only. It's open every day, but closed on Mondays, and Sunday is separated from "Every Day" but has the same times as "Every day".
That is as byzantine as the meaning of that word that I quote from dictionaries. Furthermore, by coincidence this is in the Byzantine Museum.
I know, it's not easy to get the joke at once. Maybe a lot of people missed the joke, as it has more than 100 views and only your comment.
Regards,
F
