Charles de Gaulle Airport - Paris, France

Today the Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from the Charles de Gaulle Airport in France.

We spent a 12 hour layover at the Charles de Gaulle airport drinking Johnnie Red and heckling the French for not letting us, the Toilets of the World team, into their country.

At least our time there yielded this orange toilet. Most of the airport had the same horribly depressing orange theme going on. Or at least thats what we remember. The toilet being the same color seems to support our hazy memory.

Plan B - Hartford, Connecticut

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet form Plan B. A great bar/restaurant in Hartford, Connecticut.

We thought we'd never find it. The Toilets of the World team walked for what felt like miles through West Hartford's perfectly manicured neighborhoods. We saw the three-story houses that looked as though they could have been barns long ago. We saw families doing family things, like riding bikes and wearing all the proper safety gear: Helmets, elbow pads, reflectors. So this is New England, I said to myself. Nice. Safe. Slightly Boring.

We turned left onto what appeared to be a main drag, hoping we'd find Plan B, the bar we had read about that was said to house a host of magical delights: hundreds of bottled and draft microbrews, and a cornucopia of meaty treats. Our stomachs growled as we walked past the Quaker Diner; we cursed the tanning and hair salons that lined the streets. So this is New England, I thought: Upscale hairdressers on, quite literally, every corner; Quaker eateries; and a bar called Plan B that doesn't seem to exist.

Just when we decided we'd taken a wrong turn, we saw a gigantic neon Bud Light sign for a Mexican restaurant and in its shadows sat Plan B, a modest but classy establishment where the hostess greeted us warmly, where the flavorful beer flowed generously, where the burgers tasted like burgers, and where our server treated us like friends rather than customers. So this is New England, I thought. I could get used to it here.
