Nick's hostel in Lima had this gem... take note, this could save your life.

Nick took this wonderful photo in Cusco... (Arco Iris is Spanish for Rainbow)

The tea brand around here is... interesting

It certainly puts your mind at ease that there are escape routes all along the railway line...

hahaha! ...its the story of my life...

...and what a well-timed moment for Jose to wear this shirt... I must remember this.

The tea (which made up most of our breakfast on the 4th day of our hike).

Ahhh... continue... good thing for that sign. I was about to stop 100m short of Machu Picchu. That would've made me feel like an idiot.

...and I thought I'd given up mathematics for good!

Great cave? Well... if its that great, I'd better go...

I screeched to a halt in front of this eatery...

Nevermind the creepiness of me taking photos in the toilets... but I laughed out loud when I saw this above the urinal. Lucky there wasn't anyone else around... if anyone turned around, things could have gotten quite awkward (and messy)

riiiight... I guess, at 4000m above sea level, one must take precautions

I'm hungry, how about some salted frish?

You'll never guess who drew the kangaroo...

just in case this was your first time in a public toilet...

First of all... "road" is a rather loose definition of what we were driving on. Secondly... I was dissapointed when a booming voice didn't chime in with "TIME EXTENSION" when we passed under the gate. Thirdly... the gate says "Aduana Nacional de Bolivia" which means Bolivian Customs... yeah, maximum border security... keeping the world safe for democracy

The drink that I got served on my 50-hour bus odyssey from Potosi, Bolivia to Asuncion, Paraguay

hehehe... giggle... smirk

Now... I'm sure this has a different meaning in Spanish than English... although I was staying suspiciously close to the red-light district in Asuncion.

A sign for hurdlers? or perhaps John Landy?

They spelt socceroos rong.

I thought this was some kind of fancy thermometer... then I had a closer look. It is actually a really quirky clock, in one of the nicest shopping malls in all of Sao Paulo

Portuguese isn't all that different to Spanish... but the translation helps - Free Hugs!

Ok... I get the sex shop bit... but why "burning"?

This was a slightly unusual ad... I'm not sure if I'd want my hair to do that.

Forget Riemann integrals, forget Lebesgue integrals... this is the integral of the future - Lavanderia Integral! (this is a very groan-worthy maths joke... don't worry if you don't get it)

There are comfortable buses... then there are COMFORTABLE buses... with full-service

Odd sized? Does that refer to the sum or the product of the dimensions of your luggage?

Someone should have probably told these people that, to someone for whom English is a first language... this probably isn't the best promotion one could ask for.
