These guys get their own sign

On the road to Mittenwald, Germany
Signs often reveal enough information to figure out where they were taken.  Obviously the sign above was not taken in the US, because the speed limit is in kilometers.  And apparently, it's in a fairly rural place to have cows but not rural enough that they need to post a "cow crossing" sign.

Signs in foreign countries are often amusing.  If you can't accurately interpret the words, you can still get the gist of it.  This was taken in Wurzburg, Germany and was posted atop a fortress wall.  However, like many a determined American, it didn't stop me from sitting on the wall to get a good photo of the town below.

We were waiting for our train to pull into the station on our way to Salzburg, Austria.  This sign means business.  STAY OFF THE TRACKS! it screams.
