    Plumber needed in Key West

    I have just got back from a vacation in Key West before I leave on another plane tomorrow for a week's work in Lesotho, a poor country in Southern Africa.

    I am taking my camera to Lesotho to take some shots of any plumbing I see there while I do my day job.

    But before I even get there, I was shocked at the state of some of the plumbing I saw on vacation in Key West.

    Don't get me wrong, I always try to book hotels that have good toilets. The one in our suite was OK, with a good flush but not as strong as my Cadet 3 at home. But no complaints, the little thing did try its best, but I have high expectations, American Standard expectations. Can you see it in the corner?

    But when we stepped out onto the beach, it was a different story.

    The view was nice.

    But this in a public restroom absolutely ruined the vacation.

    So be warned! South East plumbing sucks!

    If you want to see some original plumbing, visit the old fort in Key West where the "facility" is a long row of seats over a trench that is tide-washed a couple of times each day. And of course, be sure to take a stroll past houseboat row ...
