Driving and Shopping

The biggest chunk of time yesterday was spent driving back to Los Angeles. It was a pretty easy day of driving.

There were lots of sights to see, but one of the most interesting was the doorknob on the bathroom stall in one of the gas stations we stopped at. It had some kind of self-cleaning feature. The handle was wrapped in anti-microbial plastic that somehow changed after you used it. I wanted to stay in the bathroom to fully understand its mechanism, but there were a lot of people in there, so I had to keep moving along.

I did like that these stalls had actual doors, so there were no big cracks along the sides of the door for people to see through.

When we got back to LA, Denis ran a bunch of errands, most of which involved shopping. I enjoyed it thoroughly. The stores were giant compared to Maui, and there was so much variety!

In the evening, we took a break for dinner at a Thai restaurant. The food was amazing!

I stuffed myself.

    Wow – that bathroom handle thingy would have grabbed my attention for…minutes! Never saw that anywhere before…comforting thought, though the sinks with soap and water just beyond that stall door should take care of the issue, too, no? Now did the washroom exit door or the paper towel push-down handle, etc., have anything similar? There’s where I really wonder if a Q-tip swab onto a Petri dish would collect any germy gems.

    That food looks amazing! Hooray for shopping and looking around!

    As for the door handle, that is a marvel. It has to have a cartridge that dispenses and disposes, so my guess is that it’s like the Litter Genie and comes out from the larger diameter and then goes inside the handle where it is crumpled (….melted would take up less space, but that’s not possible) and stored. Dang, that is fascinating. Off to the internet!
