Ever been in a public toilet mid-stream when the lights go out? It seems that in Italy the lights are set on a timer that are motion activated and well if you don’t dance around a bit while doing your business then you will suddenly find yourself in pitch darkness. My suggestion…always scope out the location of the toilet paper roll before opening the flood gate!
On another note, I’m back up in Portofino and guess what happened to me last night? Yep, big thunder storm and I decided to have a bath. After about a ten minute soak, I found myself home alone and in complete darkness. Dripping wet I managed to find my towel and go reset the electricity although I’m not sure how safe it was to be playing with electricity boxes while dripping in a wet towel either!
The power went out five times when I finally just decided to go to bed. I think next time I decide to soak in a bath during a thunderstorm, I will bring along a flashlight or candle. Thankfully I had the light from my cell phone 🙂
Happy Sunday everyone!
