    for traveling disabled.

    Gotta say hotel rooms for the handicapped are so nice.

    Love the extra roomy showers.

    •  Wheelchair-friendly elevator controls (6+ / 0-)

      Having just returned from south-east Asia, I have noticed a few things here and there that I haven't spotted in North America (yet).

      For example, in a modern hotel we stayed in at Beijing, the elevators not only had the traditional panel of buttons on the front walls, but additional panels, one on each side wall, at an accessible height for someone in a wheelchair.

      I saw the same feature in a few other places over there as well.

      No doubt that sort of thing is becoming available here also, but just not in places that I've been to yet.

      Psst! Meet me at the Electoral College campus. The baggers will never find it!
