As part of our “Field Trip” series, we’re following Avenue Pub owner Polly Watts and her staff as they get up close and personal with some of the best beer in Belgium. Here she takes a brief bathroom break.
BRUSSELS — The last few times I’ve been to Europe, I’ve regretted not taking pics of the bathrooms. This trip I decided I was going to follow though.
The European approach towards bathrooms is vastly different that American. No worries or debates about transgender this or that. In Belgium, you are lucky to get a stall door, and the men and women’s rooms are rarely completely separate, and if you think the stairs ar the Pub are bad … . Don’t get get drunk in a Bruxelles bar and expect to make it to the bathroom safely.
Yet life goes on. Swimmingly, it seems. 🙂
