My favourtie Scouser once again has brightened up my life!

Yes indeed, Sean the man is in the picture again.  This is the 5th time in 5 countries we've met up.  We met him on our first day in Brazil, and since then we haven't been able to get rid of him.   Back to Auckland and Sean has very kindly put us up for the night before we head off again.  We head out for a meal with Seans housemate Gavin (whom I've already met in Sydney quite randomly), and we, of course, end up very drunk.

I remember sitting at home a few years back watching Billys Connellys World Tour of New Zealand.   It was late one night and I was just about to go to bed when Billy is in the middle of no-where and comes across these public toilets.  Not just any Public Toilets, and certainly not the kind you get in the UK (covered in shit, piss and vomit), but really cool, funky ones, make out of glass bottles of many different colours.  He told the viewer all about them and the guy that designed them.  I remember thinking, "Wow, they're amazing.  But there's NO WAY I'll ever see those.  They're in the middle of no where in a country on the other side of the planet."  This thought actually did depress me, that's why I remember this night so well.  So when our tour bus pulled up and the driver said there's some cool toilets if you want to go and check them out, I knew immediately what they were.  The toilets themselves were pretty cool, and worth having a gander at, but it's just the fact that they suddenly came back into my life as a nice wee surprise, makes me think there's a plan for us all.
