Photographer's Note

I love new thing. I also love old thing. I hate scary modernism though. Lisbon is a town with no public toilets. In Paris one can see modern pisspot everywhere. Yes one look like suicide cabin in Futueama. In Zurich there is a piss house with magic mirror in which one can see outside from inside but from outside it is just a mirror. It is a kind of strange feeling to be pants down while watching a girl correct her hairdo or makeup.
This ancient (probably from 28 B.C.) piss house - or rather piss wall I found on my way to the castle hill in Lisbon.I of course had to try out. Well, I felt the history. Once in Greek island of Rhodes I took a piss in 1300 years old toilet in Turkish Cafe, well Robin Hood pissed there, King Lion hearts pissed there, I pissed there. I was a part of history.
By the way how do people go toilet when they have to in Lisbon? Easy! Just jump into any cafes or restaurants and ask for toilet. They will never say no. You don't need buy anything. Just say Obrigado. This is Lisbon system. Nice I think.
