    Re: Baloon



    I tried to add a picture. If you can see it and if you mean that , called "roundabout"

    Neither native, nor teacher.

    Or maybe you mean the place where a residential "no through road" widens and has a circular kerb, to allow cars to turn. This is just called a "turning place".

    Aha. That explains the thread's title - Portuguese bal„o [="turning bay"]. Nice image.

    Re: Baloon

    Thanks a lot all of you.
    I really meant a place where you have to choose a city to go to. Is that a
    roundabout or a turning bay or simply a baloon?

    Do you mean a junction on a motorway/road?
