    It was one of my funniest...

    It was one of my funniest experiences (at least seen from now)- I needed a pubic toilet and finally found one. Big queues waiting outside at the 'Ladies', free entrance at 'Gents'! What an experience ! The whole room was absolutely dark. After a certain time my eys got accustumed to the dark, I saw, there are no cabins and no toiletts at all, just some men here or there at the wall, doing their business standing or almost sitting... I finally found out, it was NOT THAT important to me, and I left again.
