Languages and Beverages

Remember my quest to learn other languages by drinking Coke products? Last week I bought a Diet Coke (actually, it was a ‘Coke Light’) in the Heathrow Airport. (It wasn’t cold…in fact, it was rather warm…blech.) Anyway, other than the ‘Coke Light’ in English, the rest of the label was printed in some cross between hieroglyphics and Swahili. I don’t recall ever seeing this language before.

An examination of the stuck-on paper ingredient label (probably to comply with labelling laws) said the drink was ‘Produce of Georgia.’ I’m guessing it was somewhat east of Atlanta.
