Going out from Westminster subway station, then walking along athe straight road before the Parliament Building, you will find Tate Art Museum beside the Thames River. It is said that the odd toilet is there. But I can't find it at first. Suddenly, I catch a glimpse of a shining cuboid beside the Artbrit Street. What is that? When I near it, I find that the odd thing, be made of 4 pieces of glass fall to the ground and 1 piece of ceiling glass, which covers 2 square meter with no decoration. That is the transparent toilet.

I saw an elderly couple deliberately stopped at the toilet, then then old woman went into it, but came out quickly. I was a little bit puzzled, so just went into it. I found that although it is small, there are all facilities where it should have. I was indeed shocked by the transparent glass wall. You could watch every thing around it, including passengers and buildings. At this time, a little boy, with his nose close to th glass, peep from outside curiously. I hurried to wave hands to him, but found that he couldn't see anything. So I set my heart at rest. Actually, the glass is a special kind that you could see anything from inside, but see nothing from the outside.
