I consider myself well traveled, having covered over 1,000,000 air miles world-wide, and having lived in Brazil, USA, England, Venice/Italy, and Brussels, as well as traveled to every continent except Africa and Antarctica. But this past trip to Spain caught me unprepared.
While using the bathroom facilities at the 3GSM conference I literally jumped back when two women walked in and proceeded to clean all around me. What gives? I noticed that no one else seemed surprised or bothered by it, so I zipped up, washed my hands and walked out - that's an experience I could have lived without. Apparently this is pretty common in Spain, as this scene repeated itself multiple times throughout the week. At least one cannot complain that the restrooms are not clean.
