Which Way to the Bathroom — Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – January 19, 2018

This is our entry in Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – January 19, 2018.

We found this sign on the door to a bathroom in Lisbon, Portugal. Sometimes it is hard for a tourist to understand exactly which way the locals are expecting us to behave.

This photo was taken on September 8, 2017.  Specs are:

Canon 100D, ISO 100, f/16, 1/125 sec, 28mm.

    1. The words are supposed to mean that the toilet is available only for those who buy food at the establishment (written by someone for whom English is not their first language). What the illustration is supposed to suggest is a mystery, but what it seems to suggest would be considered impolite (at least) in the U.S..

    1. We think the illustration is meant to encourage us to read the words. As travelers, we appreciate the effort to provide signs in English, especially when we don’t speak the language of the country. (We wonder what signs in our country are really saying when they are translated into a foreign language.)
