    Idioms containing names of cities

    Share idioms from any language that contain names of places (cities, towns, countries, etc).

    I heard this one recently: Via Bhatinda

    Bhatinda is a place in Indian Punjab that has always been associated with taking the longer route to anywhere, with the famous “via Bhatinda” catch phrase.

    Via Bhatinda!
    We should care for each other more than we care for ideas, or else we will end up killing each other.

    Bhawaanii Jn. [Junction]:

    moHavarah: lo jii aa gayaa Bhawaanii Junction!


    it's a large Railway Junction where locomotive and the staff change and as a result the trains halt for a long time, say over 30 minutes. the phrase means a long stop.

        -Allahabadi amrood

        -Agre kaa peThaa
        -Khurja kii Khurchan/rabRii

        reminds me of the days when i used to travel by train and upon arrival at the respective railway stations i would hear hawkers selling their local delicacies.

                              Braili is famous for baans, so this means providing some thing to a place where it is not needed.
