For a little levity, I thought I’d post a recap of some of the funny signs we’ve seen while on the road. Finding these little gems is one of the many joys of world travel:
bathroom – or hidden lair of an obscure superhero in Peru?
apparently this Bangkok toilet is for emergency use only.
I couldn’t tell if this Tokyo subway sign was also an attempt at potty humor – maybe it’s just me.
It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that wine bottles aren’t allowed to smoke at most Buddhist Temples in Thailand.
The Japanese take a more passive-aggressive approach to the problem.
Peninsula Valdes in Argentina takes the prize for “strangest analogy”,
while this one from China’s Great Wall at Mutianyu is probably just an updated version of the sign used in ancient times to keep the Mongols out.
What’s in a name?
Business was understandably slow at this tour stand in Phuket…
…but this restaurant in Auckland seemed to do a really brisk business.
