During my trips abroad I’ve occasionally seen things that have made me smile or even laugh out loud. Some of these things, like being woken in the middle of the night by a drunk Scotsman playing the bagpipes in the Costa Rican jungle, you can’t really capture on film or reproduce.
But what you see below is a small collection of things (mostly bad or odd translations), starting with these Peruvian biscuits with an ‘interesting’ name…

At the start of the Inca Trail we were all issued with tickets, most of which contained at least one bit of completely inaccurate information. On mine they claimed I was 24 (I’m 29) and that I was from Botswana (I’m British).
This picture comes from a trip a couple of years back to Namibia. The name of these crackers still makes me laugh/cringe/reach for the sick bucket:
This one is from Mexico. Obviously they were dead against embroidery…
