Sometimes when you travel the bathroom IS the cultural experience. We were in Harajuku and found this public restroom near the famous Angel Heart Crepe stand. It might never have crossed your mind to combine sushi, ninjas, Mexican sombreros and toilets, but here they are. All together and working to create a clean bathroom experience. I won’t spoil the fun by revealing the rest of the cultural expereince, but needless to say you can GO here and never forget it.
When was the last time you experienced a combination of things that you didn’ think went together, yet it worked? Like pickles and cottage cheese? Or ice cream and orange juice? Sometimes people propose things that seem yuckie or odd, and we reject them right off the bat. We can’t believe that combinaiton will work, let alone be good. So we live with what we are used to and avoid the strange or unusual. We rarely try different or odd, so we miss out on all the interesting things of life.
Sometimes ya’ just have to go for it. You have to trust the universe that the new and different will be worth the risk. That orange juice and ice cream will be your new favorite thing, or ninjas and bathrooms are a safe place to do your business. Some of the most fun things are things someone else thought to create. If we relied on our own ideas to make things happen, what a boring and limited world it would be.
So today seek out your own sushi ninja bathroom or try orange juice and ice cream…the risk will be worth the reward!
