Fly on the wall...

In the months before I left for Europe I had cancelled my cable to save extra money and had thus spent extra time on the internet stumbling through sites exposing life’s little hilarities. One such site I found explained how in order to keep Men’s bathrooms clean one company that produces urinals had started to employ the strategy of installing a 3D drawing of a fly just off center of the bottom of the urinal.

The first thing I did after getting through customs at the Brussels airport was not to go buy chocolates, as suggested by the landing orientation video, but to go to the bathroom. When I walked up to the urinal I laughed out loud as I looked down at my stream bouncing off a small line drawing of a fly. Thus my first picture of Europe was literally bathroom humor.

Note how clean everything appears? I guess it works.
