Wadi Rum:Jordan

Almost made it around the world without having a natural restroom experience. Not so. After a drive out into this desert preserve, we stopped for tea and biscuits at a Bedouin tent. Unusual herbal team with sage, mint and cardamom. Had this been a traditional Bedouin event, the women would have been separated from men.

So glad to have a full explanation of how these driers work. Off to North Carolina. A new attitude toward heading south after seeing 12 Years A Slave last week.

These trough sinks are all the rage. I like the look, but being so shiny white and with overbright lighting, feels a bit like an operating scrub room. Overall the renovations here are most welcome, especially the new seats. Steve Martin's adaptation of The Underpants was entertaining and humorous. Wish he had been in the stage. Sigh.

A former fortified farm compound turned into a Five Star Hotel is not a bad place to end the day after a 20 mile ride and then dealing with torrential rains for 2 hours. I now see how a car can be swept away. Anyone for paracycling?

Now this is seriously Hygenic which is a good thing as I look around this casino. I was not here to gamble, but to go to the Eric Clapton concert which was AWESOME. He may have lost some of his vocal range, but none of his musical one. The back up band was also stellar.

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!

I don't know what Lauren Bacall has to do with anything at the farm to table restaurant tucked into a strip mall next to DQ, but I do know it is worth a drive to eat here.

Not much happening of note in this restroom, but the showcase by Alison Chase Performance dance troupe was quite amazing. Echoes of her career as artistic director of Pilobolus, but with a totally different resonance. What a treat.

This might be the most painterly restroom I have ever been in. Truly inspired. Imagine how long it took to sponge all this paint on every surface.
