Final Post….almost

Hi everyone!  I hope you have enjoyed the photos.  It was a wonderful trip and I enjoyed it very much.  It’s always fun to visit new places and see how things operate in other countries.  Below are just a few observations:

You have to pay to use the toilet, about 50 to 75 cents in some countries.  The only place you don’t pay is in a restaurant were you are eating.

The traffic lights in the UK, the cycle is green, yellow, red for stopping and then red, yellow, green to go.

Bathroom stalls, all stalls are completely private, the walls go from ceiling to floor and the handle to lock the door, on the other side provides a green/red symbol to let you know it is occupied.  How nice, I loved that.  No bending down to look for feet.

In the Netherlands, the clerks in store are not accustomed to customers saying “Hello, how are you?” 🙂

Tights for pants is totally in, as are the black pantyhose with shorts for the younger girls.

Hope you enjoy the pictures below from Switzerland and England.
