Out of curiosity, as a Dane can you understand German and Dutch (when written) reasonably well? I've recieved a lot of feedback about my signature from Europeans, which surprises me since it is in Afrikaans and has nothing to do with Europe.

Afrikaan is Dutch based right?

You sig is very close to Danish... well some of it anyway...

Quote:
Gee vir my 'n land waar swart en wit hand aan hand
vrede en liefde kan bring in my mooi land.
I'll attept to translate it to Danish based on how I read it... the beginning is the toughest part..

"Det vil være mit land når sort og hvid hånd i hånd et liv kan skabe i mit land..."

From Danish to English...

"It will my country be when black and white hand in hand a life can bring to my country..."

( the beginning could also be "Give me my country when.." perhaps? )

Close???

It is primarily Dutch based. The first line reads "Give me a country where black and white hand in hand....."

Back in 2004 - so not exactly hot of the press pictures



BTW Tiny Pics seems to be a little troubled - if you get the "image removed/deleted" square try reloading, the pictures does exist!
