Poor patch-up job


snapped in salmiya: an interesting attempt to rename a pharmacy which - i'm going to venture a guess here - used to be named Hilton Pharmacy.

in arabic they moved the dots and turned it into Hilbon. and in english, they turned into some word with a greek letter in the middle of it.

copyright issues much ?
