A Question about Language

Why is it that, in every country I visit, I find graffiti written in English? Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that the artist has taken the time to consider that tourists may be curious as to what their tag or stencil says. It would be much more difficult to figure out if they’d painted it in Arabic or Cyrillic. Still.


Taken in Kyiv, Ukraine. As far as I can tell, English is not the official language of Ukraine.


I'm curious about your thoughts!
