If you go abroad, watch out for the elevators.
If you live in the US, you might expect that the elevator doors have sensors, and will open when they touch one of your limbs. I would like to issue this warning, and I have the bruises to prove it! Get in Quick! The elevator doors will continue to close even if they are crushing both of your arms. It's like being in a trash compactor. They keep squeezing you until they draw blood. Do not extend your hand to delay take off. You will lose it! While being crushed the second time, I took aggressive action and started kicking the doors. This seemed to minimize the damage, the doors did retract, though I do have nice greenish bruises on both my arms at this moment. Souvenirs from my trip to Cyprus.
Also, do not assume the toilets work the same way. Another story for another day.
