bus stop in germany 3

There a many art exhibits that are far too exciting for dull men. We came across one, however, that we like. It has only five photos. Five stunning photos of bus stops.

Not only are the photos of something quite ordinary — the bus stops go nowhere. There are no buses.

In fact, they are not even on roads that buses travel on. They are on the grounds of nursing homes in Germany.

They are fake.

They are for patients suffering from dementia. The patients wait at the bus stops until they are escorted back inside or return of their volition, having forgotten where it is they won’t be going that day.
