Down Under / Over Easy

So I forgot to document the way that the water drains clockwise (I've also come to know that the Aussies refer to our water draining as anti-clockwise), but I did notice this below.

First, the socket looks like the "Scream" painting (Skrik, 1893 is a seminal series of expressionist paintings by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch).

Second, in the land down under, the switch is down for on and up for off.

The toilet has two flush buttons. The one at the top has a line through the middle of it. I never heard a formal explanation for this, so I would assume that it's a half flush, and the bottom button is a full flush.

I'm not making any comparisons to the bathroom and my breakfast, I was just doubling up the posts.

I walked around in the morning and found a little cafe to have breakfast at ($35.00 just seemed too much for a meal at the hotel). I walked in and they told me that they had a special today and I said that I'd take it. I had decided early on in the trip that I would be eating some odd stuff so I decided to embrace it and try whatever came my way.

This is bruschetta bread with eggs and bacon. Pretty good stuff.

I didn't know that anyone was leaving comments!!! I guess that I expected to receive an alert that a comment was made, but it didn't happen.

I'm actually home, but I have some more work to do to finish off the record of the trip.
