Pic of the day: Pousada 007


Here’s something you don’t see everyday: A hotel room with a super secret safe deposit box hidden behind an apparent electrical outlet. The actual safe is too small to put much other than passport and money and credit cards into, and this of course leads me to assume that there must be a secret entrance to an underground Batcave. Alas, turning every knob / flipping every switch / knocking on every surface has so far failed to reveal the passage…but I know it is here somewhere…

    Hey Stephen – Just sending a periodic “hello!” Thought of you this morning while I was reading over someone’s shoulder on the Muni. It seems that Brazil has a problem. A poor university system is producing too few graduates. This is probably not news to you, but it was to me! Here is the SF Chronicle version of the article that originally appeared in the Washington Post: http://tinyurl.com/5unodg

    Does it work as an actual outlet? :) And, didn’t you just ruin it for everyone?

    I was thinking, as well, that the thieves must know about this sort of safe.
