Recently, my friend Dianna stopped by for a visit on her way to China. She travels there often for business and Vancouver is a nice stop over from Ontario – especially when she has never been to Vancouver before. We spent a lot of time hanging out, walking through the city and catching up. Our her last night here, we went to Steamworks Pub (not Steamworks Bath House which is altogether a different place and would not be of interest to either of us).
After a long day of walking, some refreshments were needed, so quickly drinks were consumed and of course, then trips to the bathrooms. Steamworks bathroom is quite nice – large and the stalls are made of highly finished – and reflective – wood product. I wandered down the aisle looking for the best stall. I am not really sure I one knows, but you just know which stall is appropriate.
I was half way down the aisle when I noticed a sign on one of the stall doors. It looked like this:
I stopped, and hesitated. It couldn’t mean. . ? I slowly pushed the door open and discovered this:
Two toilets in one stall with a small dividing wall for . . . um. . . privacy? I asked my friend Dianna to join me for a demonstration. Because as you may recall – the wood was HIGHLY reflective. So, this is what you would see whilst using the stall. (don’t be afraid to look at the picture. We kept our pants on – this is a demonstration only).
