Another day, another Chinese sign. And this marks the third bit of mangled English this week to come from the bizarre natrual landform that is “Moon Hill,” a hill near the Chinese town of Yangshuo with a circle in the middle. Previously this week, I’ve shown you “fresh blowed coffee” from the cafe and a sign advising hikers that “passengers” should not enter. But then comes this:
“Akin to finding steep Safety.” I suppose the message here is to be safe around steep edges. But “akin?” Akin: adjective, 1) related by blood : descended from a common ancestor or prototype; 2) essentially similar, related, or compatible.
Perhaps I’m missing somethng here. Join together to find ways to be safe around steep edges? Anyone got a better idea?
