My blogger friend Robin has inspired me to look for the humor in bathrooms with his many postings on the subject, not least of which is Top 10 Worst Bathroom Experiences. While none of these even come close to his experiences, here are some bathroom features that I found amusing in my travels in Peru.
This was my hotel bathroom. The first thing I noticed was the big flush and little flush buttons, but I had seen those before. Do you notice anything out of the ordinary? My husband didn’t at first. Well, I don’t know about you, but I have never seen a bathroom with a phone hung by the toilet. I suppose it might be convenient but…nah I’d rather not talk in the bathroom thank you very much!
The main thing I noticed in public bathrooms was the lack of toilet paper, but the OCC staff came prepared thankfully, and we handed off rolls as needed. Here we were at a mall area and not close to the bus that contained all of our necessities. Would the bathroom have toilet paper we wondered. Sure enough it did. There was this one community roll hung on the wall in front of the row stalls. Hey, whatever works! I was thankful!
There were two stalls in this bathroom, and I thought the other stall contained two of my team mates who I assumed were taking pictures as I heard giggling coming from the stall. “What are ya’ll doing in there?” I shouted only to realize there weren’t any from my team in there! I got to laughing and couldn’t stop. By then there was a line waiting for the stall so I hurriedly and with much shaking because of my laughter clicked a photo. As you can see it’s not the best shot, but there you have it. A (bath) room with a view!
