Phase Line Amsterdam

Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam - First leg of the trip from the US completed, getting ready to board my flight to Kuwait.

I lived in Europe for several years in the 80's, but there are still things that surprise me just walking through the airport. For instance finding a female janitor mopping the restroom floor under the urinals as the male visitors (myself included) go about their business a few urinals down. This isn't new to me, but it's been 15 years, and I was still a little taken aback.

For international readers: In the US they put up a closed sign when they are cleaning the restrooms, and there would NEVER be a female in a men's restroom unless it was closed.

Chris Muir is the cartoonist that I met in Kuwait. He spent two weeks in Iraq at the same time I was there in February 2007, and so thought it would relevant to showcase his work on my site. Here is a link to Chris' humorous travelogue of this Iraq trip: http://billroggio.com/archives/2007/03/arrival_alignright_v.php
