Mexican Interior Design Mistakes

My skill at interior design has never before allow me to criticize or look down on anyone else's handiwork, until now. Have a look at the image, can you spot the mistake?

We just spent a great weekend at the Mexican resort town of Puerto Penasco (there's a tilde over that n but I'm too lazy to go looking for it). I was admiring the Las Palmas condo that we were in and came across the coat hooks in the cupboard. I was somewhat surprised to see one of them upside down. You had spotted that by now hadn't you?

In my best Spanish I asked the front desk to explain it. In his best Spanish (which is excellent by the way) he said: "It's for when the polarity of gravity inverts and you still need to hang your coat or umbrella."

I got my money's worth out of my dictionary to give you that translation.

I hope you tipped him handsomely for the excuse of a blog entry! :-)

Does that happen often in Rocky Point?

It's the first time that I've been there so not sure. Todd is going this weekend and staying in the same condos so I'm going to ask him to check his closet for upside down clothes pegs.
