Nessecary Amenities

I travel quite a lot (more about) and believe me, I've seen worse toilets than this in a hotel room:



However, at The Weekend™ Toño & I experienced something completely different:



The toilet had a remote to control the water yet and to adjust the temperature of the water and then of the fan that blow dried whatever got wet.

This was not even the best gadget this room had to offer. There was also a Nespresso machine.



If only they had covered the mattress with Egypt cotton sheets...

Civilization is quite important to the frequent traveler!

@Seth... this was in Ust-Nera (Усть-Нера) in north eastern Siberia (close to the Arctic Circle). I even stayed twice in that hotel. It is the only one in that area. After following nature's calls in the woods at -45C/-49F for days you're happy to have at least this.

Da muß man ja wirklich aufpassen, keine dummen Sprüche zu machen (zu Bild Nr. 2), denn so erfährt der Wunsch für eine "angenehme Verrichtung" doch eine ganz besondere Erfüllung.

@Martin... wir hatten ja damals in meinem Elternhaus direkt den Entwicklungssprung vom Plumpsklo zum Dusch-WC gemacht. Das man Wasser nur zum Verschwinden lassen und nicht zum reinigen braucht, empfand ich seither immer als etwas grusig (eklig für Nicht-Alemannen).
