Why would you place a new stack of paper towels on top of the handicapped toilet is my question? Despite this odd choice, there is no question that this is the best Asia food on the shoreline.

Here is a first. Toilet paper with the restaurant's name on the label. Okay. Makes sense I guess? Anyway, another delicious meal so far. Charleston is definitely a foodie city.

I don't know about you, but I never found it convenient to sit while changing my child's diaper if he/she was in a different surface. While this set up was weird, the food was inventive southern and quite delicious. Especially liked the 'Lowcountry Bouillabaisse' which had nothing in common with the French 'soup' other than seafood.

In Cuba every toilet has a small plastic container which you are expected to put your toilet paper into rather than possibly clog to ancient plumbing.

Shower anyone? Nice meal in this breezy pallador by the bay. So excited to be able to buy a bottle of wine of my own choosing that I shelled out $45 for a Maguis de Casaras Rioja that would be $13 at home. Oh well. Supporting the socialist economy.

To my eye this looks more like a hospital restroom than one situated in a sleekly decorated restaurant. Maybe because it is handicapped accessible, but why should they suffer such bland surroundings? The brunch was yummy however. I had eggs raclette- cheese,slices of potato,pickle and poached eggs with hollandaise.

What do these numbers mean? The dimension of a brick or the wall or. ... Lovely day to come to Thompson Park and watch my son play goalie in his street hockey league.

The placement of this toilet roll seems oddly high until you reach for it and then you wonder why the custom developed to place them so low. This is much simpler both visually and physically. Nice day, great group of friends and luscious foods. Happy Easter!

Talk about multi tasking. This toilet in the laundry room which also houses a closet with the house boiler and other functional items as well as a door to the backyard. Lots of doors too nitro to insure privacy.

A marble box of a restroom stall is a strange experience after seeing "War Witch" at the opening of the Human Rights Watch London film festival. A film about child warriors and other atrocities in the Congo. Horrifying on every level. Progress, though slow, is being made through organizations like this.
