From page 17 of _Good Medicine_, Volume III, Number 3 (Summer 1994):

(title) Have a Healthy Holiday!

"On a recent visit to Germany, one of our members thought he might find

a vegetarian meal at a spaghetti and pizza restaurant. He spoke no

German at all, so he asked, in French, that there be no meat on the

spaghetti. ‘Pas de viande, pas de viande,’ he repeated emphatically.

The waiter nodded his understanding, but apparently the word _viande_

(meat) was more familiar than the words preceding it. The plate of

spaghetti arrived, piled high with extra ‘viande.’

This card says ‘I’m a vegetarian. What do you recommend?’ Even

if the language you require is not listed, the symbols for NO MEAT,

NO EGGS, and NO DAIRY PRODUCTS should ensure that your dietary

requirements are understood wherever you go. Enjoy your trip!"

Note: the cut-out International Vegetarian Card is in English, Arabic,

Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian,

Italian, Japanese, Malay, Maltese, Mandarin, Norwegian, Philipino,

Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
