Have you seen the Visa advertisement with this guy dancing up and down, and jiggling his hands in front of signature monuments all over the world? I see this commercial alot in cinemas, and it give me a chuckle every time! ^_^
I thought this was a great commercial, as it associates Visa with the only card you need when travelling overseas. Hmm... try using your Visa card in a Ethopia village and see if it works.
So if Visa is the only card that you need in a developing city, then what will be the only sentence that you need to speak in the language of the country you are visiting?
"Where is the nearest Subway?"
Now someone tell me how to speak that in Japanese.
In a week's time, I will be "dancing in Japan" just like Matt Harding.
But with a Mastercard.
