Continuing with our ongoing fascination with signs, we offer some signs that leave no doubt as to their intent.
Good to know if you're in a boat!
We could see them circling. No fear that we'd swim there.
There are some signs that left us scratching our heads a bit or cracked us up.
Up – Down … very imaginative
Where exactly should you go?
We did whistle. Nothing happened.
Pigs for every occasion.
This was taken in the church bathroom. I just couldn't wait … despite the sign.
Our friend Mary McCoy had to translate this Tongan sign for us. It means literally:"You are forbidden to eat curry." The message they are trying to get across is "Don't litter." When Tongans go to the little shops all around, they buy curry to eat. The curry is "packaged" in aluminum foil and they eat directly out of it. When they're done, they throw the aluminum foil on the ground. It is normal for Tongans to talk AROUND the point that they want to make -- in fact, our directness is very abrupt, bordering on rude to them.” Hmmm... who knew? Thanks, Mary!
