Lost in Translation

This is what happens when I'm in charge of going to the lobby and ordering pizza.

First of all, its obvious people don't order pizza here very often. They said (in Bulgarian) that they had a menu- somewhere. After digging for a few minutes they produced the menu, and proceeded to tell me what it said. There was a choice between "XL 12 pieces" and "Baby 6 pieces".


I asked how big the pieces were, but they didn't understand me. When I said we wanted the XL, they gave me that "she just grew 2 more heads!" look. Then one waiter was able to tell me we could do a 1/2 and 1/2 pizza with two different kinds, so I pointed out what we wanted, then they said they'd call when it was ready.

A few minutes later the phone rang, "The pizza place is sending a complimentary bottle of coke. On the house."

I told Shelley, "Either this pizza is really big, or they just don't get pizza orders very often."

It wasn't long before the pizza arrived.'s big! This is on a TWIN BED!

See Shelley's hand at the top of the picture?

Ok, the cost of this pizza, plus complimentary 2 liter bottle of coke, AND the tip, was the equivalent of $20 U.S.!

we have a place like that in NYC that sells the most giant slices ever, but I dont think they make pies that big!!!!!

Also, I am more than willing to fly to Bulgaria to help you eat the leftovers. THOSE LOOK SO GOOD!

Tamara said...

I just had to say I'm still laughing at this lol

And I agree with the previous post... you could feed a small country with that...

One question... what is the random post in your hotel room?

I don't think they sell pizza that size in England lol. Of course, I've never tried to order one that size so maybe we do but I've missed that...
