Least Comforting Safety Sign, Ever

This is a Hipmunk guest post from Jodi Ettenberg.

Reading Alexis’ post about quirks of learning languages on the road reminded me of a sign from my trip to the Galapagos at the very beginning of my round-the-world travels. We had gone to Guyaquil hoping to find a last minute cruise, and bargained down from a ridiculous price to what everyone subsequently told us was ridiculously low. We were set to sail the “Friendship Boat” (formerly known as “Gabi”) for a 5-day trip through the Galapagos Islands.

Sometimes you get what you pay for. This was one of those times.

Over and above the fact that the ship’s captain couldn’t be more than 18 and the “crew” was tiptoeing the edges of sobriety when we arrived, this was the safety sign in our cabin:

Let’s just say we didn’t have much hope for ourselves if things went wrong.
