Those statues of the animals are strange looking. They look like a cross between a seal and a kimono dragon lol. They look a bit melted probably from erosion and time. What are they supposed to be - dogs or something or are they like monsters of some sort? I didn't see it in your post.
It's too bad about the restaurant wanting you to leave because of the baked goods. That's puts a bit of a damper on the situation. Sounds like they lost quite a bit of business though. Yeah it's hard to say if its because of a language barrier. Sometimes communication comes across as very direct and abrupt when English is a second language. It can be interpreted as very rude but the person may not be meaning it to be.
