Yesterday I dropped the van off for a smog check and decided to take a walk to the local shopping center to pass the time. On the way, I passed a small motel and happened to look up, only to be greeted with one of the strangest sights ever.
Yes, those are toilets on the balcony.
Every single one of the motel rooms had a little balcony, a cute little table-and-chair set -- and a toilet. Not my first choice of outdoor furniture, but when ya gotta go, ya gotta go.
Further inspection of the property revealed a gigantic truck and a set of toilets on the driveway, so I guess they must be replacing all the toilets in the rooms, and their current layout is temporary. But it was kind of funny to think that I was looking at the only motel in the world with an outhouse for every room.
