About six months ago, Lynn and I were at Schiphol
Airport in Amsterdam going somewhere when I found it necessary use
the menís room. Hang on, please, as this is really not a kinky
story. I went in and saw that the walls were an enormous photograph,
two actually, of streets in Delft right next to our house. One was
around the corner about a block away and the other was from the
tower of the Nieuwe Kerk, about a block in the other direction. Two
other guys in the menís room were looking at me funny wondering why
I was staring at the walls.
When I returned at a later date camera in hand, I
couldnít find it. Asking the people at the information desks and
even custodial help provided no answers and even raised some
eyebrows as to the questionable sanity of the person asking the
question. So I wrote to Schiphol and they sent me a map whereupon it
was easy to find.
I have included here photos of the menís room
walls and photos from the same places that I took myself. If you pay
very close attention to the ones in the menís room, youíll see room
numbers or something on the wall. When they put the picture from the
church tower on the wall, they did it backwards so I corrected that
in my version to show you.
