Nº 0003: Ugliness pointing to beauty

This one is rather cute, even though I can't help wondering how the tree must have felt when someone drove a 3 inch nail into it.
Still, I guess that - in comparison with the brutal amputation of its right arm - it must have been a mere nuisance.
What makes this innocent in a charming way is the typo, because to my knowledge there is no language in the world where the word is spelled like that. In fact, in Spanish double consonants are extremely rare...

Still, it points to one of the more interesting and beautiful museums in Chile, which contains the large, once private collection of alleged arms dealer Carlos Cardoen.
But then, that's a whole different kind of ugly, isn't it?
If you ever happen to happen on Santa Cruz, make sure you don't miss the museum. It is not hard to find, even in the absence of funny road signs...
