Thanks for the photos -- such fun to see all of you having such a great time. Amy doesn't look at all like a Nazi!

For anyone who wants to see all 3 parts, just click on SharonG in any of her posts above and you will see the "Tennessee Trio" posts on the left.

Sharon, re your bathroom experience, I think you were lucky to escape when you did. Here's an excerpt from The Backpackers Guide to France about the selt-cleaning toilets in France:

These high-tech self cleaning toilets come complete with rocking toilet seats and muzak. When you put your money in the coin slot, the door automatically opens (just like on Star Trek) and you step on a wet, freshly sanitised floor. In fact the whole toilet is sprayed with disinfectant after each use, which means the seat will be wet. Once you've paid your money you have 15 minutes to do the business, so you'd better be quick otherwise the door will automatically open and expose you to passing pedestrians. A lot of travellers think they can use these toilets for free by sneaking in while someone else is leaving. DON'T DO THIS! These toilets are automatically cleaned after each use. If you don't pay, the toilet thinks it is empty and will clean itself while you are in there. Expect the toilet bowl to disappear into the wall while you are sprayed with disinfectant. This happened to my mother!

Sharon, a really great story. You have given me a pleasant evening reading your adventures. Well done.

And Amy, the photos are terrific. Now I feel as though I know who you both are. Thanks,

I'm topping too because this report is great! I don't know where I was when they were first posted - glad they were topped yesterday or I would have missed out.

Great job Sharon!

Please don't yell at me, but I'm topping this so it stays within the "maximum three year range" for advanced search.
