All Types of Roman Fountains :)

You can never be thirsty while in Rome!

No matter where you go, there's always a natural spring fountain nearby.  Whether they're free standing fountains or built into the side of a wall, the water is always cold and always refreshing!

With all that extra water at their disposal, the Romans have equipped their toilets with two types of flushes.  The smaller button is for things that only need a gentle flush.  The larger button is for larger things that need a more robust flush!

The bidet is a wonderful invention, and I can't imagine why it didn't follow our European ancestors here to the New World.  The Europeans must think we Americans are downright dirty!  I was a little scared to try it at first, but once I did, my butt felt squeaky clean!

This was a public toilet in the Vatican Museum.  To flush, press the small circle or the large circle, depending on how much water you need!

This was our hotel room bathroom.  The bidet is on the right.

In a perfect world, every bathroom would have a bidet.  :)
