Where's the Polisher Part 3
Some signs along the Great Wall need some serious polishing.
There were two at Ju Yong Guan. One advertising snacks and drinks has a line that says "Childs Food (sic) Beer Cracker". One should probably politely point out that beer and children's food don't go together.
Then near the washroom -- and a clean one I might add -- is this sign: "The Space of Manage Toilets". What they meant to say was "Toilet Management Office". But perhaps it should be a little more vague and say "Administration Office or Operations Office".
Finally at Badaling, in one of the towers, inside is a garbage can. For some reason there's an arrow pointing down and it says: "Don't Call in Thunder Storm Day". In Chinese it says, "During a thunderstorm, please don't use your mobile phone".
It's a pity these mistakes are found on one of the world's most popular tourist attractions. But at least these signs gets visitors taking more pictures as fond reminders of their visit.
