Random photos from our trip abroad. Four examples of crazy city life.

First: here’s a quote from the wall of a bar we were in (called The Green Carnation). It’s from Oscar Wilde, it says, “Anyone who lives within their means suffer from a lack of imagination.”

Here’s the most fascinating thing we saw on the trip. There are a lot (A LOT) of people in London. I have never seen so many people in one place, not even in Times Square. And, many of these people are drunk on Friday and Saturday nights. So, city officials have come up with a clever idea – public urinals. City workers go around on Friday and Saturday afternoons and put these up all over the place. At night, guys (sorry girls!) can simply walk up (sorry people in wheelchairs), unzip, and let nature take its course. I was horrified. (Until around 11:45 PM on Saturday night …)

I love this. It was an advertisement for a mortgage loan company. At the bottom there is a disclaimer. “Warning: Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayment on your mortgage.” Expect to see these soon in the US.

Here’s the best idea EVER! You park your car, then you text your credit card information to the city to pay for the parking meter.
