For Ladies Only - Bathroom Humour

Fabulous Faucet!
First off,  I know it's not normal to take photos in a public bathroom, but I couldn't resist.  I checked for feet under the stalls - none.  I peeked down the hallway - no one coming. Eeeeeeee!  I was so excited it's a good thing facilities were at hand. The Ritz bathroom! The Ritz bathroom in Paris! What could be more fabulous for a Paris nut like me?  Maybe Hemingway or Gershwin used the bathroom here (well, not the ladies room) - maybe Chanel or Audrey Hepburn.

The Ritz is one of those places that doesn't seem real and it was such a thrill to be there, I needed a photo.  Well, it didn't seem like good form to take a snap while people were enjoying their evening in the bar, so I settled for a bathroom shot.  Then, I decided to take myself taking the picture. (Good thing my phone has a camera - would have been trickier with a camera bag and tripod).

Really - this is the only
time I've taken my 
photo in a public 
bathroom. Might not
be the last though!
ANYWAY, have you ever seen such an elaborate faucet? Too bad they didn't have Ritz ashtrays on the counter or Ritz embossed toilet paper (which you'd think they'd have - not that I would have taken any)......

There are probably a lot of fancier bar bathrooms in other hotels, but other hotels aren't The Ritz!

  1. I'm so jealous!! Oh what a pretty faucet! And yeah, I usually don't go taking pics of myself in the bathroom...but I would make an exception too if it was the Ritz. xx

  2. The only other bathroom that might deserve a photo would be the Georges V but no one has invited me there yet :)
