I was there 15 years ago, and the Chinese had no concept of public bathrooms. With the 08 Olympics headed there, they are really trying to come up to Western Standards. My brother, who is there, sent me these photos of their effort to upgrade their communication in the local bowling alley.

Very funny! That would be quite an experience to bowl over there.

Sparky, the second sign was to ask for training on the newly installed flush toilets, as my brother explained. It is a step up from the hole in the plank, or the floor.

Are we sure this was a bowling center and not a place where gentlemen are entertained by scantily clad women? Lol!!

You just have to love translations.

The first picture must be Ru Paul's bathroom. As for the second picture, well, that'd be a great sign in a strip club. wink

They would also probably need to add a character sitting in the next stall making a foot tapping motion. rotfl
