What I meant to say was On the toilet issue again – but the headline sort of sounds intriguing! I have written about this before – how each country has its own type of toilet. Some are wonderful – as in Japan – and some are not so much! I am sure that all of you travellers out there have stories about that time when you “just had to go” and ended up in something terrifyingly awful.
But think about the typical office block or shopping centre – there is absolutely no privacy at all. The whole “stall” idea is just that – like stalls for animals with gaps at the bottom – open at the top – and doors that fit so badly there is at least an inch space around the door. Not private at all. This seems to be just in N. America. Other countries have proper walls going all the way down to the floor and all the way up to the ceiling. Ladies – how often haven’t you been in the loo at work in that sort of non private toilet and the door opens and someone comes in. Talk about violation of privacy. It’s awful. You can hear EVERYTHING!!!! Aaaargh!
But this fascination with toilets around the world is not exclusive to me. I found a guy who has a website called Toilets Around the World. He goes by the name of The Toilet Guru.
He has pictures on his website of toilets – honestly – from all around the world. Some are lovely –
And some are not.
Oh boy – pass me the Depends.
What’s your worst experience with a toilet???
