Oh no doubt... the world over!
Nice catch, Astrid! Great name placement!
Picturit: Don't you just love the sign..... people from the tour group looked at me and knew that I have a screw loose.... who takes a picture of a sign grin...
Thank you, Elizabeth.

I cannot find him, Astrid!
Picturit: Neither can I, but the sign says that they are somewhere.....
J'ai eu du mal à  trouver ton nom.
Picturit: Sometimes it is not that visible, but it is there, Martine... under the "50".
HA! I remember when we both saw this, Astrid, and got so excited for you. It doesn't take much. smile
Picturit: This was too good to be true, Ginnie. I could not let this pass grin..

I am fascinated by what appeals to you, Astrid!
Picturit: I understand, Lisl. However how big of a chance is there to find a sign with "men at work", a topic I often use... the fun thing here is, there is nobody to be seen.....
Other people of the group already knew I had a screw loose...

I see no men, nor work Astrid

They're taking the mickey..
Picturit: Neither did I, Chris and I don't know the the expression, it is either they went to the toilet or they have lunch.... but both was inside, nobody to be seen here grin.

But I see no men at work. Roma- Napoli is an important, essential autostrada.
Picturit: Neither do I, Philine... But the sign says there are....
It is a big highway indeed.
Prise de vue magnifique !! on peut tout imaginer !
Picturit: Same with me, Claudine. It was the "man at work" sign that caught my eye.
I really liked the surroundings.
Goed getimed en gevangen en ook nog vanuit de bus ?
Picturit: Nee, dit was een lunch pauze. Maar iedereen zat binnen en ik wilde buiten zijn dus op een klein wandelingetje zag ik dit bord.... moest er wel om lachen.
They need a sign like this for such a rare occurrence grin
Picturit: Don't you just love it. I think so too....
Must be break time.
Picturit: That was my thought too.....

In the UK, that would mean either men leaning in shovels or else on their phones calling the office.
Picturit: That might be true in many countries, Alan. I have to say in Hollandshire they often work in weekends and then 57 hours in one stretch. (Friday evening-Monday morning 5 or 6)

C'est l'heure de la sieste
Picturit: I think so too, JP. A man has to eat..... wink
Glad you are observing the speed limits, Astrid and you don't want to disturb those men at work.
Picturit: I was very careful here to not wake up anybody.... you know me, silent as a lamb...
I'm assuming this was taken from the coach Astrid, if so very good timing.
Picturit: We were at a lunch break here so I had all the time in the world...
Our men at work signs are not a majestic as this one, Astrid. I can see why you were excited to capture it.
Picturit: It is maybe a rare thing to see "men at work" they need a sign to mention it.... as for women.... you can fill in the rest grin...

Very nice of them to warn you that some men will be working along the autostrada - have your camera ready! Good thing that you are warning motorists to drive at 50 when visibility is down to 50m in fog.
Picturit: ....And I think 50km an hour in fog is still scary, but I think the Italians are not that scared easily... Don't you just love it that they warn you if "men work".... I thought that was very special, Louis.
Usefully multi-lingual!
Picturit: I thought so too, Tom and I was kind of surprised by this sign ...
i'm glad that they gave you a translation on the sign Astrid....petersmile
Picturit: Don't you just love this, Peter. I am so glad that they warned me too that "Men are working".... must be very special that they work, why the sign wink

alle wegen leiden naar Rome..dacht ik eerst Astrid

50 km/h.. ze kennen je daar ook

fijne dag gewenst
Picturit: grin... dat dacht ik ook, maar ik denk dat er nu een omleiding is....
Ik blijf het leuk vinden, mijn naam ergens in te proppen... autostrade was een uitdaging geweest met -aut-astrid-e- .....
Nog een fijne dag, Willy. Wij gaan zo oppassen op de kleindochter 9 mnd oud...ik denk dat ik daar met 50km/u achter aan moet kruipen grin.. Ze is razend snel die kleine.
