Friday’s Photo of the Week (Cautionary Signage)

IMG_0542One of my favourite things about travelling happens to be when foreign countries attempt English. This invariably leads to some fantastic typos and mistaken translations.

Last weekend I went up Purple Mountain in Nanjing. The view underwhelmed but this photo pretty much made up for it all. The visual and the words combine to make me laugh. I’m not sure if the sign is a suggestion, a warning or a form of population control. With 1.3 billion people anything is possible. All I know is, when I see a comedic, tragic sign. I have to take a picture.

Caution drop down!
