Picture Postcards: Funny photo from Bangkok, Thailand

The occasional need to get to a certain room quickly is universal, so we thought this photo of a Bangkok toilet sign was quite funny. It was sent in my our contributor Kelly Pohorelic in Canada.

It is almost May and so we are getting ready for the next Picture Postcard topic which is going to be…Street Scenes Around the World! So, if you have any photos you want to contribute, as always, please just pop them in our Flickr group with a good decription on them. If you are not on Flickr, you can still contribute. Just leave a comment on this post and someone will get in touch with you.
