Google’s Tower of Babble

I’ve become quite addicted to clicking and changing the look of the site: the page certainly looks different when you switch from English to French to Russian. The thought is very exciting that with the click of a button, so many more readers will be able to access the lassi. You can speak Chinese or Thai or Croatian – and still enjoy it!

Welcome to the global world and please do give feedback. Since I can’t read most of these languages, I rely upon you to tell me if the translations are effective or not. Does it work or is it a Tower of Babble?

Babble or not, a big thank you to Google for making this possible and bringing many tongues and many new faces to Lassi with Lavina!

Please don’t forget to LIKE Lassi iwith Lavina (in any language you desire!) – and sign up for the home-delivered fresh lassi newsletter! It might be a mere click for you but for the lassi-maker it’s an affirmation that you’re enjoying the lassi!
