Italy - Mamma Mia, It's Like a Whole Other Country

A Shared Toilette found in bars and cafes in Venice & Florence - notice the foot grips to ensure no slippage while in the quarterback hike position.



A Shared Toilette - like a few I saw in Milan - a very modern enlightened city...



Like above but with SaranWrap

Re: Italy - Gosh It's Whole Other Country

The first toilet is similar to traditional toilets in Japan. *The latter are similar to some of the higher end toilets here in the States.

I always wondered why someone couldn't invent a toilet that has a self-cleaning seat.

Re: Italy - Gosh It's Whole Other Country

While I was in Paris, felt the urge and encountered one of those hole in the floor toilets. I exited men's room and used the ladies, which was much more conventional. Naturally, when leaving, here comes a lady urgently needing "her" room. She did not say anything, though.

Your right, here's another one I took. The wife says he's pretty famous and that if I had lived back then, I could have modeled for it. I just want to say that he looks a lot bigger in person

Don't know about Greg, but I would give up exchanging posts with you.

Hey guys, the pictures are great!* They are suitable for framing and they would make the perfect gift for that hard to buy for person on your Christmas list.
Please excuse the Martha Stewart moment, but sometimes the interior decorator in me just jumps right out* :

Yes, my reaction too, I was assured it was a portion of the sling-shot thingy he just used and that he was now in a meditative pose thinking about what he had done and his future, something like should I choose ER or be King...I thought it looked like a uncircumcised squid, but I had been eating a lot of calimari on the trip and probably had that on my mind...

The man posts a little art from around the world and the thread turns tawdry.
