Hang on, H said yesterday evening as we drove towards his parents’ house. I’m turning around. There’s something you have to see – its exactly the kind of thing you would blog about.
That “something” turned out to be a toilet and matching bidet, each designed partly in the shape of a soccer ball (football to the world beyond the USA):
I’m not sure how excited I am to be thought of as someone who leaps at the chance to blog about bathroom fixtures, but H was right: this is exactly the kind of thing I blog about. Who could resist taking a photograph of designer bathroom fixtures being sold in a roadside boutique in the da3yati part of the north Metn 🙂 ?
Futbowl toilets are not my style (I’m about as un-team-sportsy as one can get), but I can imagine that these fixtures would thrill the heart of any child (I’m hoping) who loves Real Madrid or Manchester United. And since soccer has such a big following here, I bet these fixtures sell pretty well, at least for the definitely-not-living-on-$4-a-day set who can afford them!
