The Public washroom

After having travelled a fair bit, I have come to appreciate the prevalance (or not) of the public washroom which seems to be required more and more as I advance in years.  The picture below is of a lovely scene from the town of Napier, New Zealand and if you look close enough you will see the door handle to the washroom on the tree and the word Toilet at the top of the tree.  I thought that this was fantastic!  What a delightful way to dress up the humdrum but quite necessary public facility.  Why is that we lack this imagination in North America?

In another photo that I can’t seem to find, they had painted whales on the outside of the washroom and it was in a park somewhere in New Zealand.

     I do have a photo here of a trashcan though so you can see how artsy these receptacles can be with a little thought.                                                

This was from Lake Taupo region
