Not knowing where you are and airports

Something that (as previously mentioned endlessly) I have a great fascination with is the anonymity and uniformity of places such as airports and hotels.

It’s more than the idea that you could be plonked down in any largish airport anywhere in the world and be both confused and reassured (if you are used to traveling a little) about where you were and more than the suggestion that they simply buy their furniture from the same place.

Anyway, many thanks to Gary Bowerman who sent me half of the images below. If it wasn’t for the lettering on the signs would you really know if you were in the east or the west?

The airports in no particular order: Amsterdam; Chengdu; Kumming; Detroit; Pudong; Shannon.
